GUTU –  C Engineering, a local construction company is suing Gutu High School Development Committee (SDC) for its property that was stolen while kept at the school premises.

C Engineering was contracted to do some work and left its equipment at the school after completion of the job.

The matter is before Masvingo Magistrate Concilia Ngwerume.

C Engineering says in 2013, after the company had finished doing work at the school it left properties on the school which got stolen while under the watch of the school.

The company filed an application with the court in 2015.

Jackson Mupoperi of Saratoga Makausi Legal Practitioners who represented the school said the matter must be dismissed on the basis that the application had expired.

According to the rules of the magistrate’s court, an application must be served within two years after it has been filed and the applicant did not serve the complainant from 2015 and only did so last year, said Mupoperi.

He also said that there was no contract between the school and the company on how the property was to be kept.

Magistrate Ngwerume postponed the matter to March 29, 2022 for ruling.https://masvingomirror.com/
