One Kingsly was recently dragged to court by a man called Vincent claiming D38,000 due to be paid to him by the defendant.

Vincent told the court that on 15 December 2009, the defendant came to him and asked for huge amount of money but he could only give him D33, 000 which he had in his possession.

He added that he called one Mike and explained the matter to him that the defendant needed money from him, after which he brought out the said amount and handed it over to him in Mike’s presence.

The plaintiff further testified that the defendant made a promise that the money would be paid on 26 January 2010, which he failed to do.

The plaintiff further revealed to the court that they made another agreement that the money should be paid on August 2010, which also failed to materialise.

Vincent said the defendant told him his boss would bring some goods from abroad and that he needed another D120,000 but he said he had only D20,000, which he gave to him again.

When the goods arrived, Vincent said he did ask for some money and the defendant promised to pay all the money at once after the sales, which amounted to D61,000, but then he paid D23,000 after some calculations.   

“The defendant later advised me to be part of his business so that I could get D10,000 of any sales made,” he told the court.

The case at that juncture was then adjourned till 28 December 2011.
