Chief Charumbira sued over $2 500

PRESIDENT of the Chief’s Council Senator Fortune Charumbira has been sued for failing to settle a $2 500 debt with a Harare garage following repairs done on his motor vehicles.


Proprietors of Accacia Motors have taken the matter to the High Court seeking an order compelling the traditional leader to pay up.

Charumbira, whose residential address was given as 16 Broad Mead Lane, Chisipite, was served with the summons on December 5, 2012 under case number HC13946/12.

He is yet to enter an appearance to defend notice.

According to the summons, Accacia Motors rendered maintenance services for Charumbira’s vehicles between November 2010 and November last year, but no payments were made.

This was after Charumbira and Accacia Motors entered into an agreement in which the latter would repair and service the chiefs’ vehicles on account which he would settle within an agreed 30-day period.

The Senator allegedly reneged on the agreement for over a year, prompting the firm to approach the courts for recourse.

The summons read in part: “The total value of all the work done to defendant’s (Charumbira) vehicles was $2 490 (and) despite demands, he has failed, delayed or neglected to pay the capital debt,”

  5. This in the abominable behaviour that destroyed our country – a ruling clique that refuses to pay for services rendered. With a president who will not pay for electricity consumed, his partners in crime follow the exact same script. Blood suckers on a mission to loot not just from the state but from private individulas. Hamunyari here vanhu ve Zanu P.F. How do you expect people to survive?
