It never rains but it pours for Former President Robert Mugabe’s Gushungo Dairies (Pvt) Ltd which has been taken to the High Court by Auto World Harare (Pvt) Ltd for allegedly failing to pay $11 000 for service done on one of the farm’s motor vehicle.
The litigation comes barely a week after Gushungo Dairies auctioned most of its equipment.
Auto World Harare (Pvt) Ltd is urging the court to slap Mugabe’s business with costs of the litigation on a higher scale.
In its declaration filed alongside the court summons, Auto World Harare said the Gushungo Dairies Isuzu vehicle, registration number, AZC 2327, came to their garage on October 29, 2018.
Auto World Harare argued it carried out the major service on the car by providing labor and supplying motor vehicle parts as well as service sundries.
“The plaintiff (Auto World) accordingly charged the defendant (Gushungo Dairies) for the services provided as per invoice number 1653622 … in the sum of $11 004,” the company said.
“It was the plaintiff’s terms and conditions that invoices are paid within seven days upon receipt. The defendant was issued with an invoice on October 29, 2018, and to date, the invoice remains unpaid,” Auto World said.
The former President’s business concern is yet to respond to the litigation.
