THE BULAWAYO High Court has ordered the imprisonment of two popularSouth African musicians, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small, for failing to repay US$18 395.82 to Victoria Falls Carnival organisers.
This follows the failure by DJ Maphorisa, whose birth name is Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe, and Kabza De Small, born Kabelo Petrus Motha, to
perform at a carnival in the resort city in April this year despite having been paid their performance fees.
Bulawayo High Court judge Christopher Banda-Dube has since ssued an arrest warrant against the two to secure their court attendance.
Banda-Dube’s directed the Sheriff of Zimbabwe, all constables andpeace officers to arrest the first (Motha) and second (Sekowe) respondents and commit them to prison.
“…You are required and directed that you take… Motha and… Sekowe of which they are found in Zimbabwe and deliver them to the keeper of the
gaol at Bulawayo Prison, together with a copy of this writ, there to be safely kept until they are served with the summons against them
issued by the High Court in Bulawayo for a claim in the sum of US$18 395.82 or have provided security in the sum of US$18 395.82 to the
Sheriff of the High Court Bulawayo whichever occurs first,” reads Banda-Dube’s order.
