HARARE - Controversial land developer Energy Mutodi has once again been hauled before the High Court on an urgent basis by a construction company for disturbing operations at a site in Gimboki South, Dangamvura, Mutare.
Dreamross Investments Private Limited trading as Develop Communities Africa through its lawyer Tendai Jennifer Magaya accuses Mutodi, Gift Chaya and National Housing Delivery Trust for illicitly and unlawfully depriving the applicant of a peaceful and undisturbed possession, occupation and control of its construction site.
In his affidavit, Emmanuel Musevenzo, the Managing Director for the applicant says in September 2012, he went into a housing development with Mutare Housing Consortium and he was contracted to fund and oversee the construction project.
He also adopted a US$200 000 debt and his company completed 95 percent of phase1 of the project as members of the consortium were timeously paying their subscriptions.
He also stated that since the 13th on November 2012 after Mutodi hit the headlines for defrauding home seekers, he brought a grader and started disturbing activities at the site by carrying out haphazard excavations.
He begged the court to intervene urgently by stopping Mutodi whose actions he said are affecting progress at the site.
