A Resettled Goromonzi farmer, Dominic Musekiwa, has approached the court, seeking incarceration of top Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) bosses, on contempt of court charges for defying a court order barring them from interfering with his farming activities.
Musekiwa filed a court application on Thursday, citing Brigadier-General Stanely Mangena and ZNA commander, Lieutenant General Edzai Chimonyo, as respondents.
In his founding affidavit, Musekiwa said he had been living at the mercy of the soldiers, who recently battered his wife during a raid at their farm despite a court order barring the army from interfering with his farming activities.
“This is an application for contempt of court as envisaged by Order 43 Rule 388 and 389 of the rules of this honourable court. I seek, herein, committal of the respondents (Mangena and Chimonyo) to gaol for failure to comply with orders of this honourable court,” Musekiwa said.
"First respondent (Mangena) is cited above in his official capacity, he is the one responsible for leading the members of the ZNA to occupy and carry out the unlawful acts, which I am now complaining about,” Musekiwa said.
