    GWANDA -
    Gwanda Town Council has received back its six vehicles attached over a $1,8m debt owed to Zinwa.
    Gwanda Mayor, Jastone Mazhale confirmed the development and told The Mirror that the vehicles were released back to the local authority following intense negotiations held with Zinwa officials at the local authority headoffice in Harare.
    ZINWA attached the vehicles in January this year and they included two service vehicles, three fire tankers and an ambulance. The attached vehicles are valued at $135 000.
    However after going through courts Gwanda resolved to engage ZINWA and make a payment plan which was successful though the sheriff proceeded to attach the vehicles despite the agreement reached with Zinwa.
    “We owe ZINWA $1,8m. We went to court concerning this matter. We however engaged ZINWA and agreed on a payment plan to be met through a stop order,” said Mazhale.
    However the deputy sheriff proceeded to attach 6 vehicles and demanded 5% of the total debt which was calculated to $92 000 despite the payment plan. The matter was reviewed and ZINWA lawyers resolved that the calculations were wrong, the deputy sheriff was supposed to get 5% of the value of attached properties, that is 5% of $135 00 which is $6 800.
