A High Court judge, justice Dube will on Thursday this week hear a matter in which Local Government minister, July Moyo is denying owing the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Transimission and Distibution Company (ZETDC), US$414 775,79.
Moyo denies the allegations saying he was miscited in the summons issued against him by ZETDC and said the figure which the power company is demanding is fictitious .
“This is denied. Defendant (Moyo) specifically denies that he has been properly cited in the pleadings. Defendant avers that there is miscitation of the defendant,” he wrote in his defendant’s plea.
Moyo also argues that customer information print out does not correctly reflect the electricity consumed by him.
“Defendant denies utilising the electricity reflected in annexures attached. ..The alleged claim being for a debt or liquidated demand is now prescribed. More specifically the claims from February 11 2013 to May 11 2017 are all prescribed,” he said.
