From Harmony to Courtroom: Musician Taso in Legal Battle Over 1999 Property Purchase
Musician Shepherd “Taso” Kunodziya is fighting a legal battle over a residential stand he purchased in 1999, which was subsequently repossessed from him. In his affidavits, Taso claims that his family has been denied “decent accommodation.” He also cited that his marriage has been ruined as a result of his eviction.
Stand sold despite payment
Taso was informed in 2014 that the stand had been sold despite him paying for it. He acquired the property, known as Stand 117 of Shortston of Derbyshire Estate, measuring 1500 square metres, from Gabroc Enterprises in 1999. He subsequently moved onto the property and made some developments to make it habitable.
No title deeds
Taso claims that he did all this while waiting for the processing of his title deeds for the property. However, no title deeds were forthcoming despite many promises from the first respondent to that effect.

Property sold to third party
Taso says that challenges developed with Gabroc Enterprises when he learned that the property had been sold to a third party. He approached the first respondent to get a heads up as to his status as the owner, but could not find any joy.
Ejected from property
The matter was subsequently made clear to Taso that his property had been sold, and he was facing imminent ejection. This was despite the fact that he had been in occupation of the property for over 10 years and had even built a cottage thereat. The new buyer effected eviction proceedings. Taso was subsequently thrown out of the property, reported hmetro.
Taso is now fighting a legal battle to reclaim his property. His family has been prejudiced by the denial of their right to decent accommodation, and his marriage has been ruined. Taso’s appeal is based on his desire to get justice and reclaim his property.
