MBABANE – Going once going twice and its sold! A farm belonging to well known businessman and transport operator Duma Msibi will be sold through a public auction by a deputy sheriff to recover a business loan his company took from Swazi Bank to purchase a Steers franchise.

Improvement on the farm consists of a single storey building with three bedrooms, lounge, dining room, kitchen, sanitary room, storeroom, spacious verandas, two garages and other outbuildings (including servants’ quarters, generator room and a roofless rondavel).
The farm also has a borehole and gravel road access, electricity connection, dip tank, cattle byre and water stands.   
According to a notice of sale issued by the lawyers representing the bank, the farm which is situated in Shiselweni will be sold on October 27, 2017 subject to a reserve price of E4.9 million.

The sale of Msibi’s property comes after SwaziBank obtained an order for summary judgment in the matter where it sought payment of E2.2 million business loan issued out to his company to purchase the franchise.
In his judgment Judge Cyril Maphanga, found that Hambaphi Investments trading as Steers, “failed to show cause against the application for summary judgment.”

The franchise was based at Manzini, at the Hub Mall.
Maphanga granted the application for summary judgment as prayed for with costs.
SwaziBank moved an application in court seeking summary judgment against Hambaphi Investments for claims in the matter where Msibi and Sibusiso Msibi were cited as defendants.
