Madinda Ndlovu sues Mapfumo's manager over failed car deal


Former Zimbabwe international and Black Mambas football club technical advisor Madinda Ndlovu has taken Chimurenga music guru Thomas Mapfumo’s manager, Cuthbert Simbarashe Chiromo, to court over the transfer of a vehicle he allegedly purchased in August 2009.
Ndlovu is seeking an order to have the luxury vehicle, a BMW 525i, transferred into his name.
But according to court papers filed at the High Court in Bulawayo, Chiromo was refusing to transfer the vehicle into Ndlovu’s name.
The two are said to have entered a verbal agreement for the sale and purchase of the vehicle but they later had a misunderstanding, resulting in the Chiromo refusing to accept the money.
Chiromo allegedly sold his vehicle to Ndlovu for $10 000, for which Ndlovu paid a deposit of $7 000.
The dispute, however, arose after Ndlovu allegedly failed to pay the balance, leading to a serious misunderstanding.
At one time Chiromo allegedly took Ndlovu to court claiming the balance, but later withdrew the case.
Chiromo, however, later refused to accept the balance as well as returning the deposit of $7 000 and $1 500 incurred towards the repair of the car. Chiromo also refused to transfer the vehicle into Ndlovu’s name.
“The plaintiff (Ndlovu) and defendant (Chiromo) entered into a verbal agreement of sale of a BMW 525i series motor vehicle registration number ABG1156, engine number 3274854325653, whereby the plaintiff purchased the vehicle for $10 000 and paid $7 000 leaving a balance of $3 000,” Ndlovu said in the court papers.
“The defendant issued summons under HC 2693/10 (Harare) claiming the balance of $3 000 which process was withdrawn from the High Court on July 30 2010.”
Ndlovu claims he has deposited the $3 000 with his lawyers.
“The plaintiff has deposited the cash of $3 000 in trust with his legal practitioners and hereby tenders the same to the defendant against transfer of the motor vehicle.”
