First Lady Grace Mugabe has reportedly defied a High Court order to return three houses she seized after a botched deal. Grace forceably took the houses from diamond dealer Jamal Ahmed after a falling out over a $1,4 million diamond ring. This has led to Ahmed’ s lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa to approach the Deputy Sheriff of the High Court to evict the First Ladies people who are occupying the houses.
Speaking to Newsday, Mtetwa said:
We have decided to engage the sheriff to evict them because they have refused to comply with the High Court order.
We are not yet sure as to when will the sheriff execute our request as was stated by the court.
Mugabe’s lawyer Wilson Manase was unreachable for comment.
