Disabled persons activist, Cde Jimayi Muduvuri has appealed to the patron of the disabled persons, First Lady, Dr Grace Mugabe to intervene on the plight facing a group of disabled persons who were evicted from Cheshire flat in Harare.
The victims, who were evicted yesterday and nowhere to go, endured the chilly weather and mosquito bites outside the flat last night, while their property is scattered all over.
Today Cde Muduvuri and Senator Annah Shiri, who represents persons with disability, visited the victims at the flat and appealed to Dr Mugabe and other responsible authorities to rescue the evicted disabled persons.
The Cheshire saga started in 2009 when the former chairperson of the Leonard Cheshire Disability Zimbabwe Trust, Mr Ben Chikwanha engaged courts to evict disabled persons who lived at the flat.
After surviving an order to vacate the premises last month, the disabled people who had been served with a seizure and attachment order from the High Court, thought their woes were over only to be taken by surprise this Wednesday when the Sherriff pounced on them.
Riot police accompanied the Messenger of Court and his team to enforce the writ of execution on the hapless residence, and it was such a disheartening sight to witness the disabled people watching their property being ejected from a place they have regarded as home for almost two decades.
