Minister's wife wants Supreme Court to stop sheriff

HARARE - Millicent Mombeshora, wife to Lands and Rural Resettlement minister Douglas Mombeshora, has approached the Supreme Court seeking to  stop attachment  of her household property over a $30 000 debt.

Mombeshora’s lawyer Jonathan Samukange of Venturas and Samukange told the Daily News: “The matter is now in the Supreme Court so the property will not be attached and whoever wants to attach the property have to seek  leave  to execute in the High Court pending the appeal.”

Last Friday,  the deputy sheriff visited Mombeshora’s  residence at number  78 Crowhill  Road, Borrowdale in a bid to recover property worth $30 000 after a December 19 court judgment delivered by Justice Nicholas Mathonsi.

Police manning the minister’s residence in Borrowdale denied access to the deputy sheriff to remove household property.

Harare businessman Francis Muzeya, owner of Long Park Services operating as Seasons Supermarket, had been involved in a legal dispute with Victory Supermarket owned by Millicent Mombeshora.

Millicent had approached the High court seeking an interdict to stop Muzeya and the deputy sheriff  from removing goods equivalent to $28 451,53 in respect of  the goods  Long Services Park had sold and delivered to Victory Supermarket.

However, Justice Mathonsi dismissed Mombeshora’s court application, granting a final order to Muzeya to proceed attaching goods at Mombeshora’s residence.

An inventory of the property due to be attached from Mombeshora residence included leather sofas,  fridges,  television sets, microwave, generator and two motor vehicles, a Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi Canter among other goods.

Did she pay or she want Muzeya to write off the debt. Asi ndiye aiva neka supermarket kange kakunyadzisa pa Westgate.
