Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ) leader Johannes Ndanga has been dragged to the High Court for failing to pay $45 000 in rent for Pax House
His landlord Paget-Pax Endowment Trust is the applicant, while ACCZ and Ndanga are cited as first and second respondents.
According to court papers, the parties entered into a written lease agreement in June 2013, prior to which Ndanga had signed a deed of suretyship in May 2013, making himself a co-principal debtor.
“Under the written lease agreement, the agreed initial monthly rental was $2 189,25 for the period June 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013, which was subject to be negotiated for subsequent periods.
“The first and second respondents (ACCZ and Ndanga) has paid some small amounts but the manner in which they have been paying has been elusive that the payments tantamount to nothing to the plaintiff’s prejudice,” the court heard.
