“On the 28th of September and at Harare, the applicant (ZETDC) and respondent (Sekeramayi) signed a Deed of Settlement in term of which it was agreed that the respondent would pay the applicant a total sum of $319 000 being charges for electricity supplied by the latter to the former.

“It was also agreed that in the event of the respondent’s failure to pay instalments due in terms of the Deed of Settlement then the whole amount outstanding would become due and payable.

“It breach of the Deed of Settlement the respondent has only paid a sum of $7 500 in dribs and drabs,” reads the application. H Metro
