Mnangagwa’s noisy blue-eyed boy threatens to take Borrowdale Brooke to court

Following the recent fallout between Gokwe-Nembudziya legislator Justice Mayor Wadyejena and the Borrowdale Brooke Homeowners Association (BBHOA), the former has threatened to take the matter to court for deactivating his vehicle tags and relegating him to use the visitors’ lane to enter and exit the residential area.

A few days ago, there were complaints against the legislator’s behaviour prompting BBHOA chairman Shingi Munyeza to write a letter of disapproval to Wadyajena.

It is alleged that Wadyajena drove around between midnight and 1am on May 11 while making noise hence he disturbed his neighbours in the process.

It is reported that the association proceeded to institute disciplinary measures against Wadyajena.

The MP has responded to the BBHOA through his lawyers of Machingura Legal Practitioners, challenging the disciplinary measures which he described as both “illegal and arbitrary”.

His lawyers wrote: “Whilst our client vigorously denies these allegations and before he has accorded a fair hearing in accordance with the said rules.

We are further instructed that you have proceeded to arbitrarily and summarily punish our client by deactivating his vehicle tags and relegating him to use visitors’ lane to enter and exit the Borrowdale Brooke Estate where he resides.

We have therefore been instructed to demand as we hereby do, that unless our client’s tags are reactivated and our client fully restored of his usual access rights to the estate, we shall approach the High Court on an urgent basis seeking appropriate relief. Be warned accordingly.

In his letter addressed to Wadyajena, Munyeza had written: I would like to bring to your attention that the residents of the Borrowdale Brooke Estate were offended and violated by the noise you were making when you drove around the Brooke in the early hours of the morning between midnight and lam on 11 May 2022.

We appreciate that you are entitled to have the type of car which makes the noise you want but to make that noise that woke up much of the Brooke residents is insensitive and disregards the community rules as set out in the Borrowdale Brooke Home Owners Association Rule Book, Clause 3.3.” read part of the letter.
