Lafarge in court for failure to deliver purchased cement

By Fungai Jachi

Cement producer Lafarge has been dragged to court by a local construction company after it allegedly failed to deliver 60 tonnes of cement in 2018.

The matter spilled into the High Court after Lafarge allegedly failed to deliver 1 200 by 50 kgs of cement to the construction firm despite full payment of more than US$13 000.

The company is alleged to have tried to deliver 17 bags instead of the 1 200 bags that had been purchased.

The plaintiff is seeking an order compelling the cement manufacturer to release 60 tonnes of cement or reimburse an equivalent amount.

Meanwhile, three illegal foreign currency dealers, who are among the nine arrested after a Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe blitz against economic sabotage, have been granted bail by the High Court.

Access Finance boss Raymond Chigogwana and Esau Bwerinofa who is the director of Chemodities Trading Private Limited were ordered to pay ZWL$200 000 bail, while Takudzwa Rafemoyo was granted ZWL$50 000 bail.

The three were ordered to surrender their passports and title deeds to their properties as well as report once to their nearest police station.
