WOMEN’s Affairs minister Nyasha Chikwinya’s property will go under the hammer tomorrow after it was attached by Old Mutual over an undisclosed debt.


In a public notice yesterday, the sheriff of the High Court disclosed that Chikwinya’s various household goods would be sold by Revelations Auctioneers at the Cold Storage Company (CSC) complex in the Willowvale industrial area in Harare.

“Duly instructed by the sheriff of the High Court of Zimbabwe, we are offering the following movable property for sale by public auction. HC13376/12 Old Mutual Property Investment vs Nyasha Chikwinya; three-piece room divider, washing machine, three culture chairs, two-door upright fridge, fan, coffee maker, scale, TV, dining table with six chairs, couch and microwave,” the notice said.

Chikwinya could not be reached for comment yesterday.

She joins a growing list of troubled top Zanu PF officials whose properties have gone under the hammer by various institutions, including banks, over outstanding debts.

Other top officials who have had their properties attached and auctioned include Mines deputy minister Fred Moyo, former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Gideon Gono, ex-ZBC boss Happison Muchechetere, former Zimbabwe Football Association president Cuthbert Dube, Marondera MP Lawrence Katsiru, Environment minister Oppah Muchinguri, Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere, ex-Information deputy minister Bright Matonga and Premier Soccer League chairman, Twine Phiri.

    All these zanu pf fat-cats are simply playing games with our minds. They want simple minds to believe that they are now bankrupt so that the public watchful eye stops watch them & their lavish styles.

    This coterie of zanu pf thieves is far from being bankrupt. All of Zim’s riches, apart from whatever is left embedded within mother earth, is in the pockets of this very tiny group of zanu pf thieves. Thanks to heartless, greed, & corrupt Gushungo, of course. Nxaaaa!
