Nash Paints Founder Tinashe Mutarisi is reportedly embroiled in a legal battle with one of his landlords Mining Industry Pension Fund (MIPF) over non-payment of rentals amounting to $27 000, ZimMorning Post exclusively revealed.
Court papers seen by the publication reads in part: …Payment of the sum of US$27 000 being arrear rentals owed by 1st defendant for the use of premises being Shop 2,Takura House 67 Nkwame Nkurunh Avenue, leased to it by the Plaintiff in terms of a lease agreement signed by the parties on November 24 2019
Payment of interest on the US$27 000 calculated from March 2020 at a rate equivalent to the minimum lending rate charged by the Plaintiff’s bankers compounded monthly from due date of rent.
