The house of Zanu PF MP for Harare East, Terrence Mukupe will today go under the hammer as a local bank seeks to recover its debt.
Mukupe’s house was attached by the sheriff of the High Court after he failed to settle a debt owed to ZB Bank.
“The defendant’s rights and title in relation to certain piece of land situate in the district of Salisbury being stand number 293 Glen Lorne Township measuring 8 529 square metres AKA(also known as) 293 Coombe Road, Glen Lorne Harare,” read the auction notice.
Duly instructed by the sheriff of the High Court of Zimbabwe we will be offering the following immovable properties for sale by public auction to be held at Raylton Sports Club corner 5th Street and George Silundika in Harare on April 1 at 10 am.”
The Zanu PF legislator has previously resisted the bank’s attempts to attach his house.
Although Mukupe was not immediately available for comment, the Glen Lorne house is the one he was reported to have been residing at when he was campaigning for the Harare East constituency last year.
Meanwhile, in yet another sign of the current economic meltdown, Bitumen Construction Services will also lose its double-storey administration block in Bluffhill as the Infrastructural Development Bank of Zimbabwe seeks to recover its money.
