Pandhari Hotels' property attached over debt

HARARE - Deputy Sheriff has attached Pandhari Hotels’ property for sale after failing to settle a judgment debt to its former employees.

The property — belonging to the Harare accommodation and conference facility located in the upmarket suburb of Glen Lorne — went under the hammer on Thursday in Harare, Revelations Auctioneers advised in a notice.

It could not be established how much Padhari Hotel owed its five former employees.

But the deputy sheriff executed against the debtor’s property in satisfaction of a recent High Court order.

The process of execution was initiated when the clerk of the court issued a writ of execution, which authorises the sheriff to attach and sell property of the Padhari as the defendant.

The writ has so far been confined to movables but once it is shown that they are insufficient, will a writ be issued for execution against immovable property.

This comes after president of the National Council of Zimbabwe Chiefs Fortune Charumbira is set to lose a Toyota Land Cruiser after a long-standing bad debt with People’s Own Saving Bank.

Charumbira’s vehicle is set to go under the hammer tomorrow, LM Auctioneers said in a notice yesterday.

The Senator, however, said that the debt was taken up by his brother Mudavanhu Charumbira and he had co-signed the agreement as his guarantor — a person who agrees to repay the borrower’s debt should he or she default on agreed repayments.
