Council ordered to compensate 43 Mbare families affected by flash floods

High Court judge Justice David Mangota ordered Harare City Council (HCC) to pay $57 556,70 together with costs from date of summons at the interest rate of 5% until full payment to 43 Mbare families whose property was damaged by flash floods believed to have been caused by the city’s poor drainage system. 

The residents approached the High Court through their lawyers, Allen Moyo Attorneys in May stating that they lost various movable and immovable properties in last year’s flash floods. The class action was filed under case number HC4127/17. They were seeking compensation in the sum of $100 556,70, with the money broken down as $57 556,70 for property and items damaged and swept away, and $43 000 as compensation for shock, loss of sleep and alternative accommodation.
