High Court Justice Antonia Guvava recently reserved judgment in an urgent chamber application filed by Daramombe High School boarding master Richard Itayi Jambo seeking to bar the Anglican Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) from evicting him from its premises.

Justice Guvava reserved her determination on the matter after lawyers representing both parties raised numerous technical points.

Jambo had accused Bishop Chad Gandiya-led CPCA of indiscriminately enforcing a recent Supreme Court order which granted him authority to take over church properties.

In his application, Jambo claimed Gandiya was now targeting anyone who once served under the leadership of former Bishop Nolbert Kunonga.

He claims that his eviction was illegal and had not been sanctioned by the Supreme Court or the High Court of Zimbabwe.
