Musindo's church in vehicle debt

HARARE - A High Court judge has ordered Obadiah Musindo’s Destiny of Africa Network (Dan) to pay $12 000 towards a vehicle they “purchased” in January last year.

Justice Felistas Chatukuta ordered the church to pay for the car belonging to Fortune Sambo.

In an urgent chamber application, Sambo cited the church and its representative Gerald Mabika as respondents.

“The defendant is hereby ordered to pay plaintiff the sum of $12 000. The defendant shall pay $200 being balance on commitment fee owed by defendant to plaintiff. Defendant shall bear cost of suit,” reads the order delivered by Chatukuta on Tuesday.

The court heard Sambo entered into an agreement for the sale of a Volvo vehicle with Dan in January last year.

According to the terms of the agreement, Dan was supposed to pay Sambo a $500 commitment fee on the day the agreement was signed.

The church was also supposed to pay two-$6 000 instalments during the month of February last year but they failed to comply, resulting in Sambo taking the matter to the court.

According to court papers filed in the High Court, Dan only paid $300, which was part payment to the commitment fee. - Tendai Kamhungira
