Through her lawyers, Liberty Mcijo and Associates, Nhira has filed summons at the Bulawayo High Court citing Nanavac Investments trading as Choppies Supermarket as the defendant. Her lawyers wrote:

Sometime in February 2019, the plaintiff slipped on the oily and slippery floor in the shop of the defendant in Entumbane resulting in her falling down while she was shopping. As a result of the fall, she sustained serious injuries on her wrist and shoulder. She suffered a wrist fracture and shoulder injury and further diagnosis of the wrist fracture revealed that the problem would last for an unforeseeable future. Plaintiff is experiencing wrist and shoulder pains as the weather changes.

As a direct consequence of the injuries sustained, the plaintiff who has been employed for 11 years as a tailor on a permanent basis by Pension Knitwear had her employment contract terminated.

The woman blamed the accident on the supermarket cleaning staff. Whether a slippery sign was put on the same floor it s not known, as well as if the woman saw it. Choppies is yet to respond to these allegations legally and hopefully, the law will solve the situation.
