Marvel Court tenants back at the condemned building - 2014-02-12
Responding to questions from Radio Dialogue, Bulawayo City Council (BCC) Senior Public Relations Officer, Nesisa Mpofu said it was the responsibility of the owner of the building to ensure that the building remains unoccupied until it has been refurbished.
The building belongs to the Church of Scientology.
"The conditions at Marvel Court are not suitable for human habitation. A statutory notice was served upon Church of Scientology to ensure the premises were vacated hence the eviction which was served out last year with the assistance of the Zimbabwe Republic Police. The Church of Scientology is supposed to ensure that the premises are not occupied until repairs are done," said Mpofu.
An official from the Church of Scientology in Zimbabwe, who identified himself as Mr Chipere said the issue was benign handled by their Johannesburg office.
