The drama in the $1, 4 million diamond ring continues to escalate after the First Lady Grace Mugabe seized 2 more properties from Lebanese trader Jamal Ahmed. The First Lady has already seized three other properties belong to the businessman. However, Ahmed’s lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa challenged the illegal seizure in court and won. High Court judge, Justice Clement Phiri issued a provisional eviction order. The order seems to have been ignored as the first lady has seized two more properties belonging to Ahmed.
When we opened on Tuesday, another eviction order was issued and the sheriff is expected to deliver it anytime from now. If they refuse to vacate the five premises, then it will be contempt of court, meaning the respondents have to be arrested and kept in custody.
It will be up to the courts because we have exhausted all other possible avenues to engage them.
