Deputy Sheriff taken to High Court over failure to evict Grace Mugabe from seized properties

Posted by Maveriq

Jamal Ahmed the businessman whose properties were seized over a botched deal concerning a  $1,35 million diamonds ring with First Lady Grace Mugabe has sued the Deputy Sheriff and the Judicial Services Commission.

Ahmed wants the High Court to compel the Sheriff to evict Grace Mugabe and give him back his properties which were seized by the First Lady.

In his court papers, Ahmed contends that the Sheriff appears afraid of the first lady. Part of the court papers read:

I also point out that this was clearly an afterthought which was designed to explain the failure to timeously execute the writ. If there was a genuine need for police assistance, it would not have taken Mr Madega up to 11th of January to advise the need for police assistance. I also point out that Number 75 King George Road, Avondale, is not occupied as respondents in the main action simply put a large chain and padlock at the main gate and all the first respondent (Sheriff) needs is a locksmith to unlock the padlock and hand over the property.

I contend that the failure to substantially respond to issues raised in all my legal practitioners’ letters is because there is simply no explanation from the first respondent for his failure other than that one of the respondents in the main application is the First Lady
