High Court Settles Knowe Residents Association Dispute

Local News

THE High Court has provisionally barred former army chief Ruramai Tukwe from masquerading as Knowe Residents Association chairperson. This follows a challenge by one of the residents' association members Victor Chitinhe who wanted Ruramai, a retired ZNA colonel, barred from representing the Norton-based organisation.

In giving a relief order, Justice Munangati Munongwa said Tukwe was in breach of the association's constitution."The respondent is be and hereby permanently interdicted to be representing Knowe Residents and Ratepayers Association as the chairman in breach of the provisions of the constitution of the association," reads the relief order.

The resident had argued that Ruramai had continued to hold on to the post despite having been voted our at the 2017 annual general meeting.Ruramai was also ordered not to interfere with the association's affairs and to rescind an AGM he had called for November 13.He was given 10 days to submit a show cause order explaining why the court should reconsider its decision if he so wishes."If you oppose the confirmation of the provisional order, you will have to file a notice of opposition within 10 days of which this provisional order and annexures were served upon," ruled justice Munongwa.

"If you do not file the opposing affidavit within the period specified order, this matter will be down for hearing in the High Court at Harare without further notice to you and will be dealt with as unopposed for confirmation of the provisional order."
