Former Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara is in trouble. According to The Herald he has been taken to court for failing to pay for furniture worth US$87 556.70 that he bought on credit from TN Harlequin. The furniture is reported to have been delivered to House Number 21 Steppes Road, Ballantyne Park, Borrowdale and was purchased on different dates in 2012. Although the paper said Mutambara had not responded to the claim, it shows what type of life our leaders live. US$87 000 worth of furniture alone? Maybe, I am just thinking like a poor ordinary Zimbabwean. Besides, he was using his own money and not the State’s. Was he?
