BUSINESSMAN Tendai Mashamhanda had his eviction from a high-end mansion in Harare’s posh Highlands suburb suspended until the Supreme Court decides on his fresh appeal, having heard the arguments this week.

The eviction notice, which required him to vacate the house by the end of Thursday, came as the businessman filed an appeal against the whole judgment of the High Court.

The three-judge appeal panel of Justice Tendai Uchena, Justice George Chiweshe and Justice Hlekani Mwayera heard the fresh appeal and reserved their ruling to a later date.

Mr Mashamhanda, who is being represented by Professor Lovemore Madhuku instructed by Mr Kudzai Rangarirai of Rangarirai and Co Legal Practitioners, is challenging the eviction on the basis of the improvements he effected on the property at a cost of millions of United States dollars. Mashamhanda said:

It is not in dispute that he (Mashamhanda) effected improvements on the property, therefore, he is entitled to compensation before eviction. He cannot just walk away empty-handed after all that effort.

But Bariade Investments, who won the legal fight over the house late last year, opposed the appeal, arguing that Mr Mashamhanda should not be compensated for the alleged improvements because they were done against the court order.
