The Sheriff of the High Court has been instructed to attach property belonging to the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC-T over labour damages amounting to $264 000 it owes to its former director general Mr Toendepi Shonhe.
Shonhe and 16 other employees were dismissed by MDC-T on allegations they were linked to Tendai Biti’s Renewal Team and the Labour Court instructed the party to pay a total of $665 000. Recently Labour Court judge Justice Betty Chidziva with the concurrence of Justice Lawrence Murasi, struck off the roll a labour appeal by the MDC-T.
Last week Mr Shonhe obtained a writ of execution which empowers and directs the Sheriff to attach property. The writ reads:
You (Sheriff) are required and directed to attach and take into execution the movable goods of the Movement for Democratic Change (Tsvangirai) 44 Nelson Mandela Avenue, Harare the above mentioned respondent of the same to be realised the sum of US$264 444 together with cost of suit for the above-named applicant Toendepi Shonhe, which he recovered by a court order of this court on the 20th day of July 2017 granted by this honourable court in the above mentioned suit.
