Ozias Bvute Loses Crowhill Land Dispute

Zanu PF legislator Ozias Bvute has lost a land dispute between him and a land developing couple Florence and Felix Pambukani after a High Court Judge reinstated the land at the centre of the dispute, measuring 724 0475 hectares to the latter, New Zimbabwe reports.

High Court judge, Tawanda Chitapi in his ruling said the Pambukanis were the rightful owners of the land and ordered Bvute to pay the cost of the lawsuit. Justice Chitapi said:

The cancellation of deed number 2410/2010 in applicants’ name and the subsequent revival of certificate registered title number 6754/08 in the name of second respondent (Crowhill Farm (Pvt) Ltd) in the respect of certain immovable property namely an undivided 0,0298% being share number 702 in a certain piece of land situate in the District of Salisbury called Lot J of Borrowdale Estate measuring 724,0475 hectares be and is hereby declared null and void.

It has been disclosed in the papers that there are third parties who obviously innocently purchased stands in the property in dispute herein. The resolutions of the wrongful cancellation of the title deed transfer of 2010 in the name of the applicants must be restored to

Having noted the irregularity of third’s respondent (Registrar of Deeds) cancellation of the deed transfer 2410/10 it is no surprise that third and fourth respondents do not oppose the relief being sought. What also remains unexplained is why Chigumba’s order was only executed upon or given effect on February 13, 2018 when the order had been granted on 29 October 2014, a period in excess of three years.
