Trombas baulks at Rudland fight

HARARE - A Harare man Timothy Trombas has inexplicably withdrawn his adultery-damages appeal — in the Supreme Court — against cigarette tycoon Simon Rudland.

The two have been tussling over a number of cases, including theft and abuse of property, which the latter had brought against the self-styled social counsellor.

“Take notice that the appellant hereby withdraws its appeal filed on the 29th of September against the respondent..,” Trombas’ lawyers Mtetwa & Nyambirai said in a February 5 withdrawal notice.

The development also comes as Rudland’s estranged wife Ann Leigh was convicted of malicious damage to property after ramming into a United Africa Limited truck late last year.

With the Borrowdale woman undergoing trial at the Harare Magistrates’ Court in September 2017, she was fined $4 000 and given a one-year wholly suspended sentence — on condition that she does not commit a similar crime or offence in the next three years.

Despite withdrawing his SC742/17 case recently, Trombas has reportedly embarked on a subtle campaign to discredit Rudland and his business ventures — and at a time the troubled merchant is facing a High Court appeal for his property theft case brought about by his nemesis.

    Please every man and his dog knows that Rudland is serious mafia. It wont take Trombas very long to discredit Rudland. All he has to do is ask the Scorpions in South Africa.
