Officers rushed to the scene on Friday night, after receiving reports of looting  in the central business district.

Videos circulating on social media show looters running from the shop carrying clothes.

Provincial police spokesperson Robert Netshiunda said no one has been arrested so far.

"Upon arrival, the roller door of the store was broken and clothing items as well as other valuables were reportedly looted from the shop. The motive of the looting is unknown, however, police believed that it was just pure criminality and those found to be responsible for the crime will be met with the wrath of law," Netshiunda said.
