Hawkflight has been sued over 'uninhabitable' houses
HAWKFLIGHT Housing Construction Company has been sued for allegedly selling "uninhabitable" houses built on weak foundations, making them susceptible to collapse within a few years.

Forty-six residents of the new Emthunzini Township suburb last week dragged Hawkflight to the High Court demanding refunds, saying the houses were increasingly becoming dangerous to live in because of varying defects.

In an urgent High Court application, the residents, through their lawyers Dube Tachiona and Tsvangirai Legal Practitioners, sought refunds from Hawkflight and a ruling declaring null and void the sale agreements they entered with the construction company in 2011.

"The agreement of sale entered into by plaintiff and Hawkflight for the sale of house number 49 Emthunzini Township, Bulawayo, be declared null and void for its contravention of the provisions of the Regional, Town Country, Planning Act Chapter 29:12 and the Model Building by-laws of Zimbabwe," reads in part the founding affidavit of the residents.

In their founding affidavit, the plaintiffs cited many construction defects which they said made the homes a dangerous place to live.

They said the land was not graded, the houses had leaking asbestos, deformed windows and poor drainage system, among other defects.
