Mohadi, ex-wife quarrel over divorce share
© VICE President Kembo Mohadi’s ex-wife, Tambudzani, has accused her former husband of abusing the court process through a High Court application he filed seeking to stop her from selling her share of the couple’s matrimonial property after their divorce.
The two divorced in March last year after signing a consent paper relating to the sharing of their matrimonial property.
Tambudzani, who is the ruling Zanu PF’s Beitbridge senator, in October last year successfully obtained two writs of execution against Mohadi as she sought to recover $259 666, which was part of their divorce settlement.
Mohadi, however, approached the High Court arguing that the writs of execution issued by the registrar of the High Court on October 14 were grossly irregular, misleading and misrepresented the facts of the matter.
Tambudzani said this application was an abuse of the court process by the vice president.
In his court application, Mohadi said Tambudzani had failed to interpret the terms of the consent paper.
“The respondent’s writs of execution dated October 14, 2019 against the applicant are grossly irregular in that; they are inconsistent with the court order for which they are issued under, they are misleading and misrepresented to the extent that they relate to a non-existent court order and they seek to create terms of the court order which does not exist at all,” Mohadi said through his lawyer Tafadzwa Muvhami.
It was revealed in court papers that Tambudzani had sought to attach Mohadi’s movable goods at lot 1 of Lot 10 Farm, Jompembe in Beitbridge.
Mohadi argued that the writs were confusing in that they sought to attach property and interest at the rate of three percent per annum from February 28, 2019, and yet the court order was only granted on March 1, 2019.
The High Court is still to make a determination in the matter.
