Forged documents used to evict woman


HARARE – An executor has been appointed in a $600 000 Harare property wrangle which has sucked in officials from the Registrar of Deeds office.

The matter involves a Harare woman, Audrey Aisha James, who is suing three other respondents over the Avondale property.

The matter could not be heard at the High Court last Friday and was deferred to Thursday this week.

James, who is represented by Kudzaishe Gama, was evicted from her residential company property in Avondale by the Deputy Sheriff in July last year through forged documents that were lodged with the Registrar of Deeds office.

According to a letter written by the chief registrar of companies, identified as M Chakanyuka, addressed to the court,the documents were not from their office.

“Copy of petition has been served and I respond as follows: CR14 signed on July 22, 2008 and square stamped on July 22, 2008 is fake, Annual Return 2008 square stamped July 29, 2010 is also fake, both documents are fake, due to the following reasons; receipt number endorsed on the footnote of the documents does not exist among our receipt books used during that period and all signatures were forged,” said Chakanyuka’s letter.

“There is also a fake annual return 2010 among the above mentioned documents.”
