Comedian and actor David Mubaiwa popularly known as Sabhuku Vharazipi has lost property worth $4 800, which will go towards servicing a $218 000 debt for discs that he sold on behalf of Ziya Cultural Arts Trust.
This comes after Ziya Cultural Arts Trust, through its lawyer Runouya Zimudzi from Zimudzi and Associates Legal Practitioners, secured a default judgment against Sabhuku Vharazipi, Wellington “Chairman” Chindara and Kumbirai “Mbuya Mai John” Chikonye. High Court Judge David Mangota gave an order for the trio to pay back the money, resulting in the issuance of a writ of execution. Ziya Cultural Arts Trust founder member David Dzatsunga wrote and directed Sabhuku Vharazipi’s first production. Vharazipi and his two accomplices were given $10 000 by Zimpapers as a donation which they did not account for. The trio allegedly sold 120 000 discs at $1 per unit and did not remit the money to Dzatsunga. The trio was later given another 80 000 discs for Vharazipi Two, which was also being sold at $1 per unit. They failed to account for the money resulting in Dzatsunga taking them to court.
According to a Notice of Seizure and Attachment in the High Court of Zimbabwe document seen by the Daily News issued last Wednesday, Vharazipi and his two colleagues lost 40 pigs, seven cows, a Jojo tank and a solar panel, all valued at $4 800.
