MUTUMBUKA CASE : NO MORE DELAYS : JUDGE newsdzeZimbabweNewsdzeZimbabwe

Judge Benjamin Chikwuri accused lawyers representing Harrison Marange, the man who bought Dzingai Mutumbuka’s US$600,000 house for just US$45,000, of delaying the matter, and warned that there would be no further postponement of the case.

Today, a lawyer for Marange and his wife Demetria Zieringa asked for the case to be adjourned in the High Court in Harare alleging that his Tererai manager Hilary Gunji of Gunji and Chasakara lost his brother. Lawyer Mithe Ndlovu was also unavailable due to the same funeral.

Judge Chikwure said he would not have accepted the postponement had it not been for the blind lawyer, Maimba, who had applied for the postponement. He said Maimba could not be asked to read the papers and be ready within a short period.

Lawyer Maimba told the court that he received the papers a few hours before he came to court and therefore did not have time to read them.

Mutombuka, who resides in the United States and is a senior executive at the World Bank, is challenging the sale and eviction of his house in Chespit.

Judge Chikwori adjourned the case to Wednesday, March 20, 2024.

Dr Mutombuka’s lawyer, Tumukudza Mudzimbasikwa of Sawyer & Mkushi Legal Practitioners, opposed the postponement.

Webster Magistrate Nicholas Chinamura, who resigned last year following allegations of corruption, ordered Mutombuka to vacate his house on a technicality. The order of 18 September 2023 ordered Mutombuka to vacate the house (Case No. HCH 4912/22) and assist the alleged buyer with the necessary paperwork. The home buyer, armed with Chinamura’s order, sought to vacate Mutombuka immediately. Mutombuka then appealed.
