ZANU PF’s Masvingo urban legislator Daniel Shumba’s property may be attached after he defaulted on a court ruling ordering him to settle rental arrears to a Masvingo businessman.

Shumba was, by consent, given up to end of January to settle rental arrears amounting to $1,300 and vacate a house owned by Emmanuel Tavaruva.

However, the politician failed to honour the ruling prompting the businessman to file for a warrant of execution.

Tavaruva is being represented by Roderick Makausi of Saratoga Makausi Law Chambers

The warrant was issued on  Tuesday with the legislator’s lawyers – Mutendi and Shumba legal practitioners – renouncing agency.

“We no longer represent him (Daniel Shumba). Kindly serve same directly on the defendant. I understand he resides somewhere in Harare,” Shumba’s lawyers wrote in court papers.

It could not be established late Wednesday whether Shumba had received the warrant as his mobile phone went unanswered.
