Chitungwiza Municipality is expected to auction 7 of its vehicles tomorrow so as to pay termination packages to a group of workers who were retrenched three years ago.
The workers, led by Charter Chikutirwe, applied to the High Court seeking settlement. A judgment was given in the their favour, resulting in the current attachment and auction of the council’s movable properties.
Revelations Auctioneers will auction the following council property: Toyota Fortuner (ADR 1383), Nissan Hardbody NP300, Toyota Hilux double-cab (AAE 7098), Land Rover (AEB 6132), CK UD Truck (AAE 5899), Toyota Hilux (ADR 4943) and Foton double-cab (AAE 7103). However, Chitungwiza town clerk, George Makunde told NewsDay that the auction will not proceed, as they had reached an out-of-court settlement with the workers.
