Bona Mugabe and Husband Ordered To Vacate Part Of Mazoe Farm
Bona Mugabe and her husband Simbarashe Mutsahuni have been ordered by a High Court judge to abandon sections of their Mazowe estate.
This comes after the National Tested Seed approached the High Court, claiming ownership of 168 hectares of Extent of Sigaro Farm in Mazowe.
As Bona and Simba did not object to the application, Justice Munamato Mutevedzi issued a default judgement in favour of the National Tested Seed.
Mutevedzi ordered that if the couple does not obey the order, the Sheriff would arrest them. Part of the judgement reads:
National Tested Seed be and is hereby, forthwith, restored full control, occupation and possession of the remaining Extent of Sigaro (S/D 3) in the District of Mazowe measuring approximately 168 hectares in extent.
Simba and Bona Mutsahuni and any person acting through them are hereby directed, forthwith, to allow National Tested Seed full control, occupation and possession of the remaining Extent of Sigaro (S/D 3).
In the event that Simba and Bona, and all persons claiming occupation through them, neglect or refuse to comply with any of the above, the Sheriff of the High Court or his lawful deputy are hereby ordered to remove respondents and any persons, acting through them, and any movable property introduced by them, or remaining on the Extent of Sigaro (S/D 3) in the District of Mazowe…Justice Munamato Mutevedzi
In addition, Justice Mutevedzi decided that Bona and Simba must pay costs if they seek to challenge the ruling.
