Bona Mugabe and Simba Chikore have survived eviction from their Mazowe farm after High Court judge, Justice Rodgers Manyangadze ruled in their favour.
The couple was barred from occupying part of the farm last month after a High Court judge, Munamato Mutevedzi, granted a default judgement in favour of National Tested Seed.
“Whereupon after reading documents filed of record and hearing counsel, the application for stay of execution be and is hereby granted,” Justice Manyangadze said.
“Execution of the default judgement granted in case HC 3720/22 be and is hereby stayed pending determination of the application for rescission of judgement filed in case no HC 4100/22. Costs shall be in the cause,” ruled the judge.
In his founding affidavit seeking reversal of judgement, Chikore said they did not willfully ignore the court application against them.
