A Chitungwiza man is evicting his own brother from his house claiming he has attained legal age of majority.
Ephraim Paradzai has summoned his brother Walter Paradzai (30) to court claiming right of occupation at his St Mary’s house.
According to the summons filed before the court, Ephraim allegedly bought the stand in 2014 before he allowed Walter to stay on the property until he attained legal age.
However, Walter is believed to have relocated to Ruwa and later returned to stay with Ephraim after he had completed building a five roomed house.
Ephraim bought stand No. 645 St Mary’s Chitungwiza from the Chitungwiza City Council. He then constructed a tiled five roomed house and a security wall on the stand.
“I allowed Walter to stay on the property until he has attained legal age of majority.
“Walter has not been paying rentals and I am not willing to accommodate him because he has attained legal age of majority…
“He is in excess of 30 years of age and is no longer dependent on me for sustenance,” said Ephraim in his claim.
He said he has exhausted all channels to evict his brother but he has not left the property.
“Despite demand, Walter has refused, neglected and failed to vacate the aforementioned stand for no apparent reason,” reads the summons.
Now, Ephraim wants the court to make a determination and to evict his brother together with all those claiming right of occupation through him.
The matter is pending before the courts.
