Land row: Chipanga furious over police inaction


MUTASA – Eccentric Sungura musician is furious over police inaction as he battles to secure his rural fields in spite of Civil and High Court orders confirming his land use rights.

This comes as a female relative of the person who sold him the land in Mutasa has begun constructing a house on the land, with a police report on the violation of court rulings only eliciting endless police interviews.

The saga has reportedly been going on since 2015 when the musician bought the rural home through an estate agent following a newspaper advert.

Chipanga, who initially sought recourse through the traditional courts which ruled against him, subsequently appealed at the civil courts which overturned Chief Mutasa’s ruling in absentia after she failed to turn up at the courts on three occasions.

Chipanga sought and was granted peace orders which police failed to enforce.

“I reported the contempt of court to the police. She was never arrested. I had obtained a Peace Order against her, which she again breached by scolding me, uttering all the vulgar words on the planet,” said the Kwachu Kwachu hit-maker.

“I again reported her to the police and on the court date, she was again nowhere to be found and the court granted me a warrant of arrest. Up to this day, she was never arrested… The woman later applied for a rescission against the default judgement,” he added.

Chipanga won the subsequent civil court challenge and the woman and everyone claiming occupancy rights through her was ordered to vacate, but there was no movement on the ground.

The woman again filed an appeal with the high court against the judgment of the civil court, which was heard on June 3 and dismissed with costs in Chipanga’s favour.

He said until now, there was no movement on the issue, with police now asking him for the location of the estate agent who sold him the homestead 15 years ago.

“I again appealed to the police on the continued contempt of court by the woman and her sons. To the shock of my life, the police on June 30 phoned and asked me to help them find the whereabouts of the estate agent which sold me the homestead in 2005. Is this corruption or magic?” Chipanga queried.

The cop who called Chipanga told this publication that he was only following orders.
