Sakunda boss, Kudakwashe Tagwirei has slammed MP Justice Mayor Wadyajena as an extortionist as he defended a $3,6 million lawsuit.

The Gokwe-Nembudziya MP is accusing the Sakunda Holdings owner of illegally using fuel tankers from his company, Mayor Logistics.

The Standard reports that however, in papers filed by his lawyers Manase and Manase Legal Practitioners on November 5 at the High Court, Tagwirei is demanding that Wadyajena answers several questions including whether he is not “driving an extortionist agenda”.

“Does the plaintiff take this claim seriously? Is this not an attempt to run an extortionist agenda?”“Is the amount of almost $3 million that plaintiff and his shareholder, Hon Justice Mayor Wadyajena, have received not satisfactory?

“Are the plaintiff and Hon Justice Mayor Wadyajena running an extortionist cartel to fleece genuine businesses? “Is this claim not evidence of state capture by rogue political party youths who are running an illegal cartel to extort money from Zimbabweans through threats and intimidation?”

The fuel magnet claimed he entered into an agreement with Wadyajena and had paid everything agreed on.

The notice of appearance to defend himself was accompanied with agreements entered into between Wadyajena and Tagwirei including evidence of payment of $1 883 666.00 to the MP on May 22, 2018 through his lawyers.

Tagwirei claimed that was the last payment made to offset his obligations to the MP.

However, in his application Wadyajena insisted he was owed money for the use of the four fuel tankers belonging to his company without his consent.
