Tazvi Mhaka Loses Mercedes Benz And Cash In Botched Residential Stands Deal
Two businessmen appeared in court yesterday for allegedly duping a home seeker of money and a car in a botched residential stands deal.
Popular socialite and businessman, Joseph Tazvi Mhaka lost a Mercedes Benz and US$1, 500 cash in a botched residential stands deal with One Thousand Construction Company.
Reports indicate that the directors of One Thousand Construction Company, Joseph Murimwa, and his business partner Trust Mururi, who runs Mururi Investments defrauded Tazvi Mhaka.
The duo was not asked to plead when they appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs. Judith Taruvinga on initial remand.
They were remanded out of custody to October 27, on free bail.
The court heard that sometime this year the duo approached Mhaka with the intention to sell two stands located in Belvedere West and Ruwa.
The two businessmen told Mhaka that the residential stands were serviced and that the papers were in place.
Mhaka then successfully negotiated with the two and offered his Mercedes Benz and US$1,500 cash as payment for the two residential stands.
Mururi and Murimwa accepted the offer and parted ways with Mhaka upon payment.
Mhaka only realized that he had been duped after he went to the City of Harare’s Department of Housing and was informed that the stands in Belvedere and Ruwa did not exist.
The duo was arrested after Tazvi Mhaka made a report to the police.
Mhaka is a businessman who is known for his flamboyant lifestyle from the pictures and videos he shares on social media.
He is friends with Genius Kadungure popularly known as Ginimbi.
