Scandals[edit]

Failure to pay rentals[edit]

Zwizwai reportedly failed to pay US$750 monthly rentals from March 2012 to May 2013 accumulating US$10 623 in arrears. As part of the agreement between the managers of House Number 5 Collin Avenue in Borrowdale, Guest & Tanner Real Estate, and Zwizwai, he was supposed to pay all the council rates and electricity charges. He allegedly failed to pay the utility bills and the Zesa electricity bills accumulating a debt of US$5 212,93. He has also failed to pay US$3 482,70 to the Harare City Council.

In the summons filed at the High Court in May 2013, Guest & Tanner Real Estate argued that Zwizwai breached the lease agreement and that he should be evicted from the property. The property manager wanted Zwizwai to pay US$19 318,63. Despite demand, it is alleged that he failed or refused to settle the US$19 318,63 debt or vacate the property which prompted Guest & Tanner to seek the intervention of the courts of law through filing of summons.
