Emthunzini residents evicted

Eight families from Emthunzini, just a few kilometers outside Bulawayo, have been evicted from their homes by a local construction company for allegedly defaulting on agreed premiums.

It was an emotionally charged atmosphere when eight families were this Tuesday kicked out of houses they have invested in at Emthunzini by Hawkflight Construction company for allegedly defaulting on agreed terms of payment.

70-year-old gogo Moyo and her colleagues could hardly hold back tears when they narrated their ordeal.

Hawkflight operations manager, Mr Martin Moyo says the evictions are lawful and are being done by the messenger of court.

The suburb falls under Umguza rural district council and has over 900 households with more than 2000 people.
