Five ESCOM vehicles impounded by Sheriffs over MK104 million debts
Sheriffs on Tuesday impounded five vehicles belonging to Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM) for failing to settle a debt amounting to K104 million it owes Plastic Extrusion.
According to information sourced by this publication, ESCOM was ordered by the High Court Judge Michael Mtambo to pay the said amount to Plastic Extrusion and Moulding Limited but the company failed to comply with the order.
Judiciary Spokesperson Mlenga Mvula confirmed the development in an interview with the press.
Mvula said two weeks ago Sheriffs went to ESCOM to seize the said vehicle as one way of enforcing the Judgment but the parastatal blocked the process by obtaining an injunction which was successfully vacated on Monday this week.
“The sheriffs seized the five vehicles because Escom did not comply with a court judgement to pay Plastic Extrusion the said amount. The case was heard in our commercial division under file number 73 of 2012,” Mvula said.
ESCOM officials have also confirmed of the development.
