Elton Chigumbura in court for failing to pay rent
Elton Chigumbura

Our former beloved cricketer is having some woes. Shame. Elton Chigumbura has been taken to the High Court for failing to settle his rental arrears.

Local property firm, Best Results Management Enterprise (Pvt) Ltd, is seeking an order to compel Chigumbura to settle $18 000 rental arrears, and also to pay for the costs of the suit. Ouch!

Best Results Management Enterprise (Pvt) Ltd alleges Chgumbura has not been paying rentals for Bay 1, stand number 17001, Sande Crescent, Graniteside in Harare. Chigumbura is yet to enter appearance to defend.

“On or about 1 October 2016, the parties executed a memorandum of lease agreement in respect of Bay 1, 17001 Sande Crescent, Graniteside, Harare. The rental payable was in the sum of $1 800 per month. Defendant (Chigumbura) only paid his rentals once,” the firm said in its declaration.

“The arrear rentals to date amount to the sum of $18 000 and despite numerous demands, defendant has refused, failed and or neglected to pay the money. Wherefore, the plaintiff (Best Results Management Enterprise (Pvt) Ltd prays for payment of the sum of $18 0000, collection commission in terms of the Law Society tariff and cost of suit on a legal practitioner and client scale.”

Doesn’t sound good, really.

Some theories could even be in play.

The matter is still pending, and we hope our former beloved will have it all gone soon.
