High Court judge, Justice Felistas Chatukuta has ruled in favour of Nyakutombwa Mugabe Legal Counsel and ordered former Zanu PF secretary for administration, Didymus Noel Mutasa, to pay $26 919 in legal fees.
The law firm had last month filed a chamber application at the High Court seeking a default judgment against Mutasa, Rugare Gumbo and Norton MP, Temba Mliswa, who had not filed opposition to summons issued against them in September this year. The High Court order was however silent on Mliswa and Gumbo who were cited as second and third respondents respectively.
The three had approached the law firm challenging their expulsion from Zanu PF on allegations of attempting to remove President Robert Mugabe from power, acting in collaboration with former vice-president Joice Mujuru. The three allegedly became evasive when they realised their efforts were unfruitful.
