Samkange hauled to court over pensions


The National Social Security Authority (NSSA) has taken former Mashonaland West Governor Nelson Samkange to court over unpaid pension contributions.

Samkange, who made headlines two years ago when he led government officials on a wild
goose chase with claims a spirit medium could make diesel come out of a rock, allegedly owes NSSA over $3 000 from his Rukoba Farm in Banket

“The defendant defaulted in its statutory payments/contributions as from July 2009 up to June 2010 in the sum of $2 284,48, being the principal debt,” read the summons, adding that Samkange owed NSSA a further $888,32.

“The defendant is therefore indebted to the plaintiff in the sum of $3 172,80 in respect of the said statutory dues payments which amount has become due and payable.”

NSSA said concerted efforts to recover their dues from Samkange had proved fruitless.

The social security authority is taking to court a number of individuals and companies over unremitted pension contributions.

Recently they threatened to attach Air Zimbabwe property over unremitted pension contributions amounting to $1 million.

NSSA raided the airline’s headquarters, seeking to attache moveable property, but Air Zimbabwe was quick to come up with a repayment plan.
