Ex-employee drags ZC back to court

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) marketing executive Andrew Muzamhindo has dragged the organisation back to court demanding $30 000 in interest emanating from the $103 000 arbitral award that he won in 2009.

According to court summons that he filed before the High Court on Thursday last week, Muzamhindo obtained an arbitral award of $103 208,39 with interest against ZC.

“In October 2012, the arbitral award was registered as a court order by the High Court under case number HC 5479/09 whereupon the defendant (ZC) was ordered to pay the sum of $103 208,39 as arrear commission to the plaintiff (Muzamhindo),” Muzamhindo said in court papers.

“The defendant made various payments towards the principal debt between 2012 and June 2015 when the principal debt was paid in full.

“This payment of $103 208,39 was not inclusive of the interest accrued from 2009 up until June 2015 when the principal was satisfied and paid in full.”

He, however, told the court that he is now demanding $30 962, which is the interest of five percent per annum calculated on the principal debt with effect from 2009 to 2015.

“This interest has been accruing from 2009 and the defendant in full knowledge of such interest payment amounting up to $30 962 which is due and payable to the plaintiff has not paid anything to satisfy such interest owed by itself to the plaintiff.

“The sum of $30 962 was never paid and despite numerous verbal telephonic and written demands, the defendant has failed, refused or neglected to pay the plaintiff the sum due,” the court heard.

ZC is yet to file a response to the claim by Muzamhindo.
