Conniving Man Fraudulently Contracts Brother’s Three Busses To Zupco
A Harare man allegedly changed ownership of his brother’s three imported buses valued at US$50 000 before he fraudulently entered into a contract with Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO) to lease the vehicles.
William Munyoro has petitioned the High Court seeking an order that his brother, Tendai Munyoro should deliver his buses to him or alternatively pay him a total of US$49 559, 90 which is the value of the buses including interest.
Tendai is yet to respond to the allegations. He has been cited as the first respondent while Rusitu Power Cooperation and ZUPCO are the second and third respondents respectively.
New Zimbabwe reports that William shipped the buses to Zimbabwe through the Walvis Bay in Namibia and incurred several costs including transport and accommodation for the drivers.
The court heard when the buses arrived in Zimbabwe, Tendai told his brother he had paid US$2 400 as the shortfall in clearance fees at the border and expected a refund.
According to court papers, William discovered that Tendai had fraudulently changed the ownership of the buses into the name of the second defendant and he has no relationship whatsoever with Rusitu Power Cooperation company.
Tendai went on to contract the buses to ZUPCO without the plaintiff’s knowledge and consent.
The court heard William no longer had access to his buses because of the arrangement his brother had entered with ZUPCO and the older Munyoro was suffering financially.
His lawyers said several efforts to repossess the buses have been futile prompting their client to approach the High Court.
In other news, iHarare had also reported that a 32-year-old Belvedere woman was dragged to court recently after she reportedly deliberately transmitted HIV to her boyfriend.
Tendai Dhliwayo, 32, was arrested after her boyfriend (name not supplied) discovered that she was cheating on him with several men.
