MUTARE-The Master of High Court has opened offices in Mutare in a bid to decentralize services and ensure convenience and ease access to the public.
The offices opened their doors on Wednesday. They are situated at the second floor First Mutual building in Herbert Chitepo (First) Street.
Deputy Master of High Court Kumbirai Chigomararwa confirmed the development in an interview with Chipinge Times on the sidelines of an awareness campaign in Mutare.
“The reason we are here is because we realized that there is an information gap. Most people are not aware of the office of the Master of High Court.
“We then took it upon ourselves to move around provinces raising awareness on inheritance laws in the country. We want to avoid a situation where people commit crimes after the death of a loved one. We want members of the public to learn their rights and what to do for them to access inheritance from their loved one,” she said.
The Master of High Court provides services which including registration and administering of deceased estates, insolvent estates and companies under corporate rescue.
Similar offices were opened in Gweru in June.
