MDC secretary for external affairs Ms Gladys Hlatshwayo has been evicted after failing to settle her council and electricity bills in Mabelreign.

Ms Hlatshwayo who was residing at Number 7, 12th Avenue, Mabelreign, owes Mrs Memory Matiyenga, the owner of the property $377 in council bills and an additional amount for 660,40 units of electricity.

“I unknowingly leased my cottage to Ms Hlatshwayo, who is an MDC-A executive member, as of January last year. She has been giving me a torrid time to get monthly rentals, water and electricity bills.

“I have tried to deal with the case in a civil way but I am now at the receiving end. I have reached out to his superiors but it didn’t yield any results. I engaged MDC-A leader (Mr) Chamisa over the matter, who promised to solve the issue, but nothing has materialised.

“I issued her with a three-months’ notice of termination of tenancy on September 11, 2019 which expired on December 31. She paid her rentals as and when she felt like,” Mrs Matiyenga told the Herald.

She then took her to court.
