Businessman up for perjury


THE Harare businessman who allegedly demolished his own buildings in a bid to chase away his defiant tenants after his application to evict them was dismissed by the Supreme Court now faces several counts of perjury emanating from affidavits he deposited with the courts.

Report by Senior Court Reporter

The businessman, Tarik Adam, who claims to be the director of A Adam and Company, is expected to appear in court soon to answer to perjury charges after one of his tenants, Ritenote Printers (Copy World), reported the matter at Harare Central Police under CR HC 663/10/12.

According to the complainant in the matter, Tarik allegedly claimed he owned the building at Number 109 Leopold Takawira Street in Harare and deposited an affidavit that led to the eviction of Copy World from the premises.

Tarik accused Copy World of defaulting in rental payments. However, according to the company records held with the Registrar of Companies, the CR14 for A Adam and Company indicated that its directors were registered as Yusuf Ali Adam and Gulam Hussein Ali Adam, contrary to Tarik’s claims.

Ritenote Printers, represented by Hamunakwadi, Nyandoro and Nyambuya Legal  Practitioners, have since filed contempt of court charges against Tarik for allegedly demolishing a building at Number 147 Mbuya Nehanda after losing a court case. The matter is now pending at the High Court where A Adam and Company, cited as respondent, filed an application seeking leave to file a supplementary opposing affidavit.
