ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC)’s property attached by the deputy sheriff early this week over a labour dispute with former employee Andrew Muzamhindo goes under the hammer next week, NewsDay Sport has learnt.
ZC was on Tuesday afternoon left counting their loses after the deputy sheriff impounded its outside broadcast van, as well as vehicles used by managing director Wilfred a and selector Givemore Makoni.
According to the Sheriff of the High Court of Zimbabwe Sale-in Execution the property will be auctioned in the capital on December 27.
“Duly instructed by the Sheriff of the High Court of Zimbabwe, we shall sell by public auction the following vehicles to the highest bidder at 709 Midlands Close, Waterfalls, Harare on Saturday, 27th December 2014 at 10am.
“Andrew Muzamhindo vs Zimbabwe Cricket, Case No HC5478/09 Ref: Case No HC 414/14, 16 digital damera outside broadcasting van, Scania 93 truck — Reg No AAN 2398, Mazda BT50-Reg No ABK 3164, Nissan Navara- Reg No ABP 0965, Mazda BT50-Reg No ABK 305,” read part of the sale-in execution.
Muzamhindo, a former ZC former executive had taken legal action to recover outstanding payment in commission and wages.
Muzamhindo was an executive in ZC’s commercial department for three years, helping to run their public relations and media departments, as well as securing sponsorship.
He left the organisation in 2008, which was when an arbitration process began over money allegedly owed to him, reportedly in excess of $100 000.
The case went to the Labour Court, and ZC then appealed to the High Court, which ruled in Muzamhindo’s favour last year.
Mukondiwa’s car, a Mazda BT50, was seized from ZC’s head offices in Highlands earlier in the day on Tuesday while the Nissan Navara King Cab used by Makoni was removed from his apartment in the Avenues later in the day.
Makoni is currently on tour in Uganda with Takashinga Cricket Club.
The OB Van was impounded on Tuesday afternoon from ZiFM Stereo’s premises, where it was reportedly stationed in a bonded warehouse.
