Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) co-founder Didymus Mutasa has hired MDC-T secretary general Douglas Mwonzora as his lawyer in a case in which he is fighting to recover his property seized by the Messenger of Court after allegedly failing to pay $26 919,25 plus interest to Nyakutombwa Mugabe Legal Counsel for services rendered after he challenged his expulsion from Zanu PF.
Last week Mutasa reportedly locked the messenger of court out of his Umwinsdale property after they had gone to attach some propert. However, the Messenger of Court returned on Wednesday last week to seize Mutasa’s British made full-sized four wheel drive spot utility Range Rover SUV. Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com on the case Mwonzora said:
It is a civil dispute with people who are calling themselves his former lawyers and they want some money from him but we have since established that Mr Mutasa was in fact represented by Professor (Lovemore) Madhuku and not by the lawyers in question. It is our contention also that the removal that was done was simply calculated to embarrass him; for example, property worth $200,000 was removed to satisfy a debt of $26,000 so we have filed an application for revision of judgement and a fresh application for stay of execution.
