Blow for Zifa 'creditor'

HARARE - A Zifa "creditor", Lazarus Riva, who has been relentlessly visiting the association’s president Philip Chiyangwa’s private offices in a bid to recover $30 000 he claims is owed to him, yesterday suffered a major blow after the Harare businessman successfully filed a restraint order against him.

Riva said the $30 000 was for services he rendered to the previous Cuthbert Dube-led board. The magistrates’ court yesterday ordered Riva to “keep peace towards the applicant and shall not conduct himself in any manner likely to provoke peace and violence.”

Failure by Riva to comply with the order will result in arrest.

The restraint order was welcomed by Chiyangwa who said it was one of many to come against what he termed the “association’s fraudulent and dubious creditors”.

“While Zifa has taken appropriate commercial and administrative steps to manage its bona fide creditors, the Zifa president has stepped up efforts of taking appropriate action against the Association’s fraudulent and dubious creditors,” said Chiyangwa.

He said genuine creditors have been engaged and are aware of the steps taken to deal with the Zifa debt.
