Mphoko filed the application through his lawyer, Zibusiso Ncube on Wednesday and he is claiming US$308 000 or the equivalent at the prevailing interbank rate. In his submissions, Mphoko said:
The current Vice-President receives a monthly salary of approximately US$14 000 or the equivalent at the previous interbank rate.
This, therefore, means that to date, the arrears are in the sum of US$308 000 or the equivalent at the prevailing interbank rate.
Mphoko lost his job in November 2017 following the military coup that deposed the then President, the late Robert Mugabe.
He is currently out on bail on abuse of office charges going back to the time when he was Vice President.
