Former cabinet minister, Didymus Mutasa and his wife, Getrude Sthembile Mutasa’s urgent chamber application challenging the attachment of their property over a US$27 000 debt from outstanding legal fees has been thrown out by the High Court.
Mutasa allegedly owes Nyakutombwa Mugabe Legal Counsel for services rendered in 2015 when he was challenging his ouster from Zanu PF.
The Sheriff of the High Court attached a Range Rover Sport and several other household movables from his Umwinsdale home to auction it and recover the debt.
Mutasa is contesting the amount.
Through his lawyers, Mwonzora and Associates, Mutasa filed an urgent chamber application for stay of execution together with a court application for rescission of judgement.
Justice Priscilla Chigumba however ordered Mutasa’s matter to be removed from the roll, finding that the application failed to satisfy the requirements of urgency and urged the applicant to pursue other suitable alternative remedies.
