Windhoek Renovations demands N$3m from late businessman, EV Mining

August 22, 2022

Windhoek Renovations has dragged the estate of late businessman Barnabas Uugwanga and his company EVS Mining Contractors to court demanding to be paid over N$3 million in debt.

Court documents seen by The Brief reveal that Windhoek Renovations entered into a written agreement with the late Uugwanga in March 2018 to hire equipment and operators for use at the Navachab Mine site.

Windhoek Renovations, which is being represented by Bradley Basson, said the company entered into another partly oral and partly written agreement with EVS Mining and its director Uugwangwa to hire more equipment and personnel.  

Basson further argued that a quotation titled no: H3148 sets out the equipment to be hired and the rates charged for the hiring and the provision of services as agreed between the parties.

The agreement, which was valid for 12 months, was personally signed by Uugwanga on behalf of the EVS Mining and bonded himself in his personal capacity as co-debtor jointly and severally for the full amount due to the Plaintiff from time to time.

Windhoek Renovations is also suing Martha Mwanyengwa in her capacity as executor of Uugwanga's estate.

"The plaintiff issued the invoices as per the agreed invoicing procedure. In the premises, the First Defendant is indebted to the Plaintiff in the total amount of N$3,086,895.95, being the total sum of all outstanding invoices pleaded. The First Defendant has, despite demand fails, refuses and neglects to pay the said amount or any part thereof,” read part of the court documents.

The matter is before Judge Herman Oosthuizen.

On Monday, the parties were referred for a mediation. Shikongo Law Chambers represents the defendants, who have since filed their notice of intent to defend the application.
