Madhuku’s NCA property attached over $3,000 debt


THE Lovemore Madhuku-led National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) party has had two of its vehicles attached by the deputy sheriff over failure to pay $3 658,96 in outstanding terminal benefits to a former employee.


The vehicles — a Nissan Hardbody double-cab truck and a VW saloon car — were attached last Friday after former NCA driver Eddie Sithole obtained a warrant of execution last month.

Sithole is being represented by lawyers from Mwonzora and Associates.

NCA spokesman Maddock Chivasa confirmed the incident, but insisted the organisation’s lawyers were working on having the public auction stayed until the parties have agreed on the outstanding payments.

“We strongly dispute the amount we are said to owe,” Chivasa said.

“We paid him cash and also gave him a Pajero vehicle which we believe had a significant value to offset most of the debt.

“We still insist the auction cannot go ahead before we arrive at the accurate figures owed to Sithole considering all the payments paid to him earlier.
“We don’t see a reason why two vehicles should be attached.”

However, NewsDay has seen an agreement signed between Sithole and Madhuku which states that the Pajero was valued at $2 300 on November 8 2012.

The NCA has of late been embroiled in legal wrangles with former employees owed over $100 000 in outstanding gratuities.

The NCA’s demise began when MDC formations went into a coalition government with Zanu PF in 2009 which culminated in the writing of the new Constitution enacted last May.

The action meant the then civil society group was left fighting alone after donors switched sides to fund a government-led constitution writing exercise.
