According to Drum, Zahara said her gardener, who has been her employee for over 10 years, said that he found her door slightly open and closed it, never entering the house.

"I left home on the weekend of Easter and returned on Thursday, 21 April. There was no break-in at the house. Everything was exactly where I left it. The thief did not take anything else besides the six SAMAs and I want them back. I don't care even if the person leaves them at my gate. I want those awards back."
