Parirenyatwa sued over $13k power debt


Former Health and Child Care minister David Parirenyatwa has been taken to the High Court by the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), which is seeking an order to compel him to pay $13 452 for electricity supplied at his property known as Castle Kop Farm in Rusape.

Through its lawyers Chihambakwe, Mutizwa and Partners, the power utility petitioned the High Court claiming payment of the outstanding amount. The former minister is yet to respond to the litigation.

According to the court papers, Parirenyatwa is said to have failed, neglected and/or refused to settle the debts for his electricity account being number 3223828, prompting the power utility to approach the court for recourse.

“The defendant (Parirenyatwa) is indebted to the plaintiff (ZETDC) at May 21, 2019 in the sum of $13 452,28 being charges in respect of power/electricity supplied by the plaintiff to the defendant at the latter’s special request and instance in terms of the running electricity supply contract between the two, for account number 3223828,” the power utility said in its declaration.

“The defendant has failed, neglected and/or refused to pay the above sum/amount despite demand. By reason of the said failure, neglect or refusal to pay the above sum/amount, the defendant is obliged to pay the same with interest thereon at the prescribed rate which is currently 5% per annum,” ZETDC said.

The matter is pending.

  2. I have discovered some considerations through your blog post post. One other thing I would like to convey is that there are many games available on the market designed in particular for preschool age young children. They consist of pattern recognition, colors, creatures, and styles. These commonly focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This keeps a child engaged without sensing like they are learning. Thanks

  9. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
