Mugabe Falls On Hard Times As Debt Collectors Come Knocking

LOCAL seed company, Seed Potato Co-op (Pvt) Ltd, has dragged former President Robert Mugabe’s family business, Gushungo Holdings (Pvt) Ltd, to court seeking to recover over $174 000 it was owed for potato seed supplied on credit in 2015.

“In July 2015, the parties (Seed Potato and Gushungo Holdings) entered into a verbal agreement in terms of which plaintiff (Seed Potato) was to supply to defendant (Gushungo Holdings), stock of potato seed on credit at a unit cost of $30 per pocket,” the firm said in its declaration.

“Accordingly, defendant currently owes the balance in the sum of $174 193, exclusive of interest. Despite several demands, defendant has neglected, failed and/or refused to pay plaintiff the sum of its indebtedness,” it said.

Mugabe’s firm has not yet entered appearance to defend, but had been given 10 days within which to respond to the litigation.
