A LOCAL drug supplying firm, Select Health Care (Private) Limited has taken Rock Foundation Medical Centre (RMC) owned by Bikita West MP Munyaradzi Kereke to court over its failure to pay for medical supplies worth $55 999.
Select Health Care, cited as the applicant in the matter, is up in arms with RMC over an alleged breach of business agreement.
According to court papers filed at the High Court, the two firms entered into a medical supplying agreement last year, where the terms of agreement were that RMC was to pay for the supplied drugs after 60 days.
Part of the claim by Select Health Care reads: “The Plaintiff avers that the Defendant has failed its obligations and as at 4 July 2013, the amount due and owing was $55 999, 45. Despite, repeated demand the Defendant has failed, refused and/or neglected to pay the sum of $55 999, 45.”
The drug firm through its lawyers, Tavenhave and Machingauta, has also demanded full payment of the debt including interest at the rate of 5% from the day of judgment to the date of full payment.
The court papers also indicated that the alleged amount owing accumulated from December last year. RMC is yet to file its response to the claim.
