AFM Faces US$120 000 Lawsuit

The Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) has been dragged to court by a biogas Energy specialist, Dutch Lungu who is seeking US$120 000 compensation.

Lungu blames the church for causing him to lose his job with a South African company.

He said that he was awarded a one-year contract as a Renewable Energy Specialist Consultant of Biogas Taskforce Zimbabwe.

Lungu claimed that the job was going to give him US$120 000 in total. Nevertheless, the contract failed after AFM, On March 26, 2019, filed a court application against him at the High Court and failed to serve him on time. Part of his summons read:

Further, AFM did not serve the application and lied before the court that the application had duly been served, thus misleading the court to give the plaintiff a default judgement on May 8 2019.

I only knew of the defendant’s actions a day before the trial date on the motion roll.

I was based in South Africa where I have been commissioned on a twelve-month contract as a renewable Energy Specialist Consultant of Biogas Taskforce Zimbabwe, a department of the Office of the State Research Scientist.

I had to travel from South Africa to Harare to respond to AFM’s application only to find that a default judgement had been granted.

Lungu is also seeking an order against AFM to stop any case against him in the courts.

AFM has lodged a complaint against Lungu at the High Court over a stand in Epworth in which the former accuses the latter of failing to fulfil his part of the bargain.
