Lawyer Kadzipatike rejects K3m Mzuzu City Council cheque to release impounded vehicles

Prominent private practice lawyer George Kadzipatike has rejected the K3.5 million cheques by Mzuzu City Council as a payout to his client  to reclaim three vehicles impounded High Court sheriffs on Tuesday.

Mzuzu based Lawyer George Kadzipatike of Jivason and Company: Let Mzuzu City Council pay in full

Kadzipatike is representing Grace  Mussa, who is claiming K25 million over her house and  shop which were sold by Mzuzu City Council in 2005.

The sheriffs impounded  three vehicles from Mzuzu City Council  which are  a double cabin pick up,  10- tonne truck and half tonner which would be sold if the council fails to remit the money in full within 10 days.

But the council  chief executive McCloud Kadammanja said they were on top of things as they had started making payments with K3.5  million deposit.

Kadzipatike , however, is not taking it, saying the council should pay the remaining K20 million “plus sheriff’ fees” to get back the impounded vehicles.

“My client wants the whole amount paid. They missed an opportunity of paying K5 million instalments,” said Kadzipatike.

But Mzuzu City Council lawyer Victor Gondwe said  they communicated that “the council will delay in paying the money.”

Gondwe said  the council would not manage to pay the whole K20 million at once considering its financial constraints.

Let all Councillors of Mzuzu City Council defect to DPP and buy freedom. Mk20m is is peanuts for our ruling party. You made them rich during the Blue night and now you are failing to service a debt. Silly city council.
