EVICTION ORDER LANDS GRANNY 95, IN HOSPITAL

PENSIONER MADE HOMELESS IN PROPERTY ROW THREATENS NEW TENANT

An ailing 95-year-old granny who became homeless and sick following an eviction court order out of  her family home has threatened to come back and haunt new tenant after death.

The distressed old woman, Mosarwe David Chale who was given until the end of this month to vacate her Blue Town home has landed in Nyangawe hospital.

The auction and the eviction order came after Chale’s family lost a court battle for property which was transferred to the old woman’s son after the death of her husband.

The partially deaf and wheelchair bound pensioner said the house, registered in the names of her only surviving son, Felix Keatametse Charles, was auctioned at a give away price after they lost a case at the high court during a dispute over a borehole in Jwagoree settlement near Serowe village.

“My husband’s estate was transferred to the names of my only surviving son because he is the one caring for me.

After losing a court battle for a borehole belonging to his late father, my son was left with a debt which resulted in our home being auctioned,” Mosarwe told The Voice two days before she was rushed to the hospital with heart problems.

The old woman said she suspected the sudden turn of events would send her to the grave.

“I won’t survive this tragedy but if I die because of this problem I am telling you the people who occupy my house will be haunted until they learn a good lesson, I swear,” the pensioner said.

Sharing his family plight Felix said that after losing the court case, his parents home was sold at half the price of its value. “What irks me the most is the fact that the house was auctioned at a give away price.

The house was valued at around P 240 000 but to my shock and horror the deputy sheriff gave it away it for only P120 000,” Felix said “I tried to plead with them to allow me to sell the property for a better amount after I lost the court battle but they rushed the process and auctioned the house for less so that we don’t benefit anything.”

He said efforts by the city clerk to intervene in the case since his mother was a registered destitute with the council drew a blank because of the pressure their creditor was exerting on them.

    STOP THIS CRUELTY TO ELDERLY PEOPLE.
    If you can assist to give this lady some Legal assistance please pick up the phone to the Newspaper and they will signpost you to the family

    Someone in authority including Social Workers should come on board and assist the family and this creditor should have been a bit more lenient.
    STOP CRUELTY TO THE ELDERLY if they are not having their homes DEMOLISHED they are being EVICTED – TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE

    “He said efforts by the city clerk to intervene in the case since his mother was a registered destitute with the council drew a blank because of the pressure their creditor was exerting on them.”

    The City Clerk should have done more and asked someone above them to intervene if they failed e.g.
    the local councillor failing them, member of parliament, failing them someone above the member of parliament — THEY SEEM TO BE CONTENT WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED – KEEP TRYING TO GET SOME ASSISTANCE FROME SOMEONE IN AUTHORITY- N- GET ANSWERS
    Alternatively
    tHE CREDITOR SHOULD HAVE FOUND OUT THEIR MONTHLY INCOME AND POSSIBLY COME TO SOME AGREEMENT WITH THE SON if he could pay the money in instalments- one wonders how much commission the creditor is getting for doing this?? This attitude of creditors behaving very unprofessionally can lead to some suicide by people who are in debt- THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOUR SHOULD STOP FORTHWITH

  8. cheerful 2013/01/29

    One also asks alot of questions like do people know where to get assistance from when they find themselves encountering problems like this??
    Questions need to be asked if people like the 95 year old and her son are being made aware if they can get legal assistance when they do require it???
    Someone should have been there for the family in the time when they lost the court battle over the borehole

    One thing people ought to realise that we cannot stay young FOREVER. The lives of elderly people should be made as comfortable as possible. Let them enjoy those remaining years without been being shoved AROUND

  10. cheerful 2013/01/29

    Those in authority should be seen to be doing something for the elderly

    these is very bad and only the wicked can do these. In Africa we dont value the aged because of money. We should stop blaming the white and concentrate on what we can do to keep the aged well so we wont regret in future. They have enough to show us.

    If i was the person who wrote this article i would certainly make a follow up to see if there has been any POSITIVE DEVELOPMENTS OR NOT as well as find out if the 95 year old lady’s condition has improved.

    at 95 and because she has problems with her hearing and is wheelchair bound she shoudl be considered VUNERABLE

    There as another incident where a 104 year old had her home demolished and nothing again was heard about whether any progress was made towards assisting her or not.

    The 1st October ( i am repeating myself like a PARROT!) is set aside annually as the day of the ELDERLY and surely one should read about how Progress is being made to assist the elderly(???)

  19. cheerful 2013/02/05

    Sure that if anyone would like to assist the 95 year old and her son they can contact the reporter who wrote this article and they could signpost you to the family-sure the reporter would be happy to assist
