Zim High Court Gives DJ Maphorisa & Kabza De Small Major Loving, Makes Unexpected U-turn

DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small have heaved a sigh of relief after a Zimbabwean High Court Judge ruled that they should get back the money they paid to avoid arrest in the country.

High Court Judge Justice Martin Makonese ordered the Sheriff of the High Court to immediately pay back US$18 400 to the Scorpion Kings. The duo paid the money as security to avoid imprisonment after they were detained at Holiday Inn hotel in Bulawayo for seven hours.

An arrest warrant was issued against them for failing to perform at the Victoria Falls Carnival in April this year. The warrant of arrest was issued after  Victoria Falls Carnival (Private Limited) urgently applied for an arrest warrant when they learnt that DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small were performing at a show in Bulawayo over the weekend.

Kabza De Small through his lawyer, Zibusiso Ncube of Ncube and Partners, filed an urgent chamber application challenging the writ of execution. Victoria Falls Carnival (Pvt) Ltd and Sheriff of the High Court were cited as first and second respondents.



Ncube said the organisers of the carnival were paid the money they were owed by the Scorpion Kings. He added that the claim for US$18 400 in damages does not look to be supported by the contract between his clients and the Victoria Falls Carnival organisers. He said:

The claim for damages … doesn’t look to be supported by the contract itself. The contract that is signed was that in the event of cancellation (Maphorisa and Kabza) won’t pay for certain things. And these are the things that these people are claiming,

In his judgement delivered on Tuesday, Justice Martin Makonese ordered the Victoria Falls Carnival (Pvt) Ltd to pay the costs of the suit on an attorney and client scale. In an unexpected u-turn, the Sheriff of the High Court was also ordered to immediately pay back Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa or their nominated agents the sum of US$18 400.
