LATE businessman Jonathan Kadzura’s wife has approached the court seeking to be awarded half the share of his assets before her late husband’s estate can be wound up.
Joan issued summons against her husband’s estate on December 7 2017, for remedy based on the principle of tacit universal partnership claiming her equitable share of the assets allegedly acquired by herself and her late husband.
In her declaration filed alongside the summons, Joan said she married Kadzura in 1996 and remained in wedlock until his death on October 29 2016, adding the marriage was blessed with four children.
“During the subsistence of their marriage, plaintiff [Joan] and defendant [the estate] were engaged in a tacit universal partnership, under which they pursued various economic and domestic ventures for their welfare and, in the main, for profit,” Joan’s lawyers, Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers said.
The lawyers said Joan and Kadzura jointly contributed their cash and labour into the activities of their partnership for a common benefit of providing for their own needs and those of their family.
The estate is represented by the executor dative, Clever Mandizvidza.
