TENSION HEIGHTEN OVER SAVE’S ESTATE
Former late Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s family has reportedly reached an impasse concerning his estate.
This has resulted in two lawyers being appointed to arbitrate distribution of the estate. Two camps have emerged in the dispute resulting in Mr Tsvangirai’s widow, Ms Elizabeth Macheka, and two of the late politician’s children calling for the appointment of Mr Innocent Chagonda of Atherstone & Cook as executor to the estate.
The rest of the children and relatives seem to favor Mr Charles Maunga of Maunga & Associates.
An officer at the Master of High Court’s office, who convened the edict meeting last week, later resolved to appoint both lawyers as joint executors.
The decision puts to an end the dispute pitting the family members.
The executors, according to the law, have the duty to investigate the correctness of the inventory filed on registration of the estate.
