A local law firm, Nyakutombwa, Mugabe Legal Counsel has filed a chamber application at the High Court seeking a default judgment against former Zanu PF members, Didymus Noel Mutasa, Rugare Eleck Ngidhi Gumbo and newly elected Norton MP, Temba Peter Mliswa, with a view to recover a combined $24 929 in legal fees.
The trio were sometime in 2015 expelled from Zanu PF following allegations of attempting to remove President Robert Mugabe from power, while allegedly acting in cahoots with former Vice-President Joice Mujuru. After being kicked out of Zanu PF, they approached the law firm and engaged it for the provision of several legal services related to their expulsion from the party. The services included challenging expulsion both in the High Court as well as the Constitutional Court (ConCourt)
However, the legal firm said when the trio realised their actions were not at all successful they allegedly became evasive and despite numerous meetings and demands for settlement of fees, payment was never done.
