The municipal police force immediately responded with support from ZRP.
Upon arrival at the premises they were attacked with stones leading to the injuries.
Even passers-by were caught in the attacks as well as parked and moving vehicles.
The injured are receiving medical attention at Parirenyatwa Hospital.
Harare City Council strongly advises members of the informal sector not to be confrontational When approached by law enforcers.
Attacking the law enforcement agents will not scare the officers away from their duties but will instead bolden them to ensure all illegal activities are eliminated.
