LUSAKA businessman Anchie Mctribouy has sued lawyer Martha Mushipe in the High Court for failing to pay him over K70,000 in rent arrears. According to his affidavit in support of originating summons filed in the Lusaka High Court principal registry, Mctribuoy is seeking an order for leave to issue vacant possession and warrant of distress of premises known as house number 100/11, Ibex Hill, Lusaka.
Mctribuoy is also seeking an order for damages, costs and other reliefs the court might deem fit.
He stated that he entered into a tenancy agreement on January 14, 2017 with Mushipe in respect of the house.
Mctribuoy stated that he wants the court to order Mushipe to pay him the outstanding rentals at the rate of K6,500 per month from January 2017 until vacant possession was rendered less money paid so far.
He stated that Mushipe had breached the tenancy agreement to the extent that she had willfully failed, neglected and or refused to pay rentals within the meaning of the tenancy agreement to the extent that the same had accumulated in excess of K70,000 and that the payment had been erratic.
Mctribuoy stated that he has found it relevant to terminate the said tenancy agreement on account of failure to perform by Mushipe who has, despite several reminders, failed to honour her obligation.
