The ongoing dispute between Marjorie Mutemererwa and Shingi Munyeza took a dramatic turn this week as Mutemererwa’s lawyer filed a police report against Munyeza, accusing him of using offensive language and making threats.
Last month, Harare High Court judge David Mangota ordered Munyeza and his wife, Wilma, to repay the US$100,000 debt they owed to Mutemererwa.
On August 9, 2023, it is alleged that Mutemererwa, accompanied by the Sherriff and her lawyer Priviledge Seda of Masango Seda and Mutema Attorneys, went to Munyeza’s residence in Borrowdale Brooke to serve him two summonses. One was related to civil imprisonment if he failed to repay the debt, and the other concerned the attachment of his cars.
“On August 9, the Sheriff and my lawyer arrived at Shingi’s residence and he refused to open his gate. My lawyer called him and Shingi then called his own lawyer who in turn advised him to open the gate. Shingi started belittling and lecturing and bullying my lawyer telling him that he is a small boy who should just sit down. He said he (Munyeza) is a presidential advisor and is untouchable. The Sheriff went ahead and served the summons,” Mutemererwa said.
Subsequently, Mutemererwa’s lawyer filed a police report against Munyeza, a former Group Chief Executive at African Sun Limited and member of the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC).
The incident was recorded under RRB 5667833 at the Borrowdale police station.
