    Gweru –  A former River Valley worker who was evicted by River Valley Properties from a cottage at a farm house in Magakooshla Park in Shurugwi has dragged company chief executive officer Smelly Dube to court demanding restoration of his occupation.
    Emmanuel Matondoro who is being represented by Reginald Chidawanyika of Chipere, Chidawanyika Legal Practitioners was granted a provisional order at the Gweru Magistrates Court allowing him to go back into the house.
    It is understood that Matondoro was evicted after he gave evidence to the Commission of Inquiry on the sale of urban land and provided information on his employer. He and his family stayed in the open for three days, according to court papers.
    Matondoro says that the illegal eviction was carried out by a Police officer, Dube herself and other people. He said that his property was thrown out of the house and his bedroom locked forcing his children not to go to school because the uniforms were inside the bedroom.
    He also says in his court papers that he and his family stayed in the open and suffered immensely after the eviction.
    Dube who is being represented by Sithole of Ncube Attorneys has opposed the matter and the case has been set down for hearing on September 18, 2019.
    Dube argues that she was wrongly cited in the court papers as she was cited in her personal capacity. She says that she acted at the instance of River Valley hence the company should be cited.
    According to court papers Dube, Ntokozo Nyati and a uniformed Police officer removed Matondoro’s property from a cottage at stand number 1620 Magakooshla Park and left his family in the open.
