Police quiz ZC staffers

HARARE - Police yesterday questioned unnamed Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) staffers over contempt of court charges with the aim of obstruction of justice in the continuing labour dispute against former employee Andrew Muzamhindo.

The Deputy Sheriff in December pounced on ZC and seized its Outside Broadcasting Van as well as staff vehicles after the association lost a drawn-out labour dispute with former executive Muzamhindo.

However, of the 16 vehicles placed under judicial management, the Deputy Sheriff has so far failed to locate nine, resulting in a police report at Highlands Police Station, case number RRB2361608, accusing ZC of concealing the cars.

“Two senior managers were questioned at Maiden Drive (ZC’s head offices) and asked about the whereabouts of the vehicles,” said an insider.

Muzamhindo attached the cars in December after winning a long-standing suit against his former employer at the High Court, where ZC had appealed after the Labour Court initially granted judgment in the Harare businessman’s favour last year.

Vehicles which the Sheriff was able to seize belonged to the then managing director Wilfred Mukondiwa, convener of selectors Givemore Makoni, IT manager Anesu Kafesu, director of coaching Andy Waller and Mashonaland Eagles chief executive Vimbai Maisva.

The employees have meanwhile filed interpleaders claiming that the cars attached by Muzamhindo do not belong to ZC, which has resulted in the postponement of the auction initially scheduled for December 27.
