Selmor Mtukudzi threatens to take Miss Tourism Zimbabwe to court for breach of contract
Selmor Mtukudzi’s lawyers Farayi Nyamayaro Law Chambers, yesterday wrote to Miss Tourism Zimbabwe Trust demanding $3 250 as payment for the artiste’s fees for being contracted to play at the pageant held last year. The trust is alleged to have breached a contract with the musician, when, just before the show started, advised her that she no longer had a slot on the schedule.
The law firm said Mtukudzi had spent money in preparing to perform at the show and was entitled to the fees since she had cancelled all her other shows. It also claimed that the trust had promised to pay after the show despite the non-performance. In the contract which was attached to the demand letter, it was agreed that Mtukudzi would be paid the fee broken down as $3 000 performance fee for her 10-member ensemble and $250 for transport and refreshments.
NewsDay reports that Benjamin Chimutengo from the Miss Tourism Zimbabwe Trust was not immediately available to comment on the matter yesterday. Mtukudzi’s lawyers said they will take the trust to court if they fail to pay the sum of $3 250 within seven days of the date of the demand letter.
