Pfugari Properties, the developer of low density Norton suburb, Knowe has applied to the High Court to have 3 judgements, worth over US$200 million and given against them, nullified.

The developer argues that the alleged Chairman of the Knowe Residents and Ratepayers Association (KRRA) who acted on behalf of the association in the cases was illegitimate.

Pfugari argues that, “Ruramayi Davy Tukwe has not been the legitimate Chairman of the Association and his chairmanship was challenged in court under Case No HC 709/22 which was granted by Musithu J on the 7th of December 2022.

“It is submitted that one cannot put something on nothing, hence any documents signed by Ruramayi Davy Tukwe from 2004 was an illegality.

“It follows that the orders that were obtained by the 1st Respondent (KRRA) represented by 2nd Respondent (Ruramayi) out to be set aside,” it argues.

Ruramayi was declared an illegitimate Chairman of KRRA in another case files by one Chitenhe, a stand holder in Knowe.

Development in Limbo

The applications which the developer had lost compelled him to carry out development in Knowe Phases 1 up to 3.

A KRRA official who commented on the issue said it was all a ploy by the developer to avoid carrying out his duties.

“The Developer through these applications wants the courts to remove the obligations to ensure development of the suburb.

“The Developer wants to permanently condemn and relegate our suburb into a glorified urban village without the usual privilege of a Sabhuku.

“This injustice if allowed to prevail will see the property values plummet and at best depressed.

“This has a direct bearing in terms of return on investment on disposal/ sell of properties and on security for loans,” he added.
