According to ZimDaily, one of the buildings that were destroyed belongs to Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) member Job Sikhala who is currently in remand prison.

Sometime in 2020, more than 100 families were left homeless following a High Court Order that saw demolitions of houses in Budiriro, Harare.

Affected families were left counting losses, as they helplessly watched bulldozers destroying a place they once called home.

In some of the images that were circulating on social media at that time, a handful of defiant householders were seen trying to stand in front of a council bulldozer in an attempt to block it from demolishing their properties but to no avail.

In other news, Harare reported that lawyer and politician Fadzayi Mahere has taken to the High Court demanding US$100 000 from local publication Kukurigo Editor Edmund Kudzayi in defamation charges.

Recently, Kukurigo published an exclusive exposé that was widely shared on WhatsApp. In the exposé, Kukurigo alleged that Mahere’s affair resulted in the collapse of Tinashe Murapata popularly known as Baba Nyenyedzi’s marriage.

In response, Fadzayi Mahere through her lawyers denied having an affair with Murapata. She demanded an apology and retraction from Edmund Kudzayi within 24 hours and threatened to institute legal proceedings against the Kukurigo boss if he failed to do so.

In the latest development, Mahere is seeking US$100 000 from Kudzayi. Apart from the US$100 000 in damages, Fadzayi Mahere wants Edmund Kudzayi to pay interest on the amount from the date the summons were served to him. – iHarare
