A HARARE businessman claims he handed his $300,000 Bentley Continental vehicle to Spirit Embassy leader, Prophet Uebert Angel, on the promise that he would, within eight months, reap benefits three times the value of the posh car.

Ndabazinengi Shava says he gave the car to Prophet Angel last year to sow “a seed into his life”, adding they reached an agreement that should the “seed” fail to germinate and triple in value as promised, he would get his car back.

Now Shava has approached the High Court in a bid to reclaim the vehicle after failing to realise the promised three-fold harvest.

According to the Herald, Shava’s lawyers, Chinyama and Partners, filed summons at the High Court on Thursday seeking the immediate release of a black Bentley registration number ACO1759.

They are also seeking an order declaring their client the legitimate owner of the vehicle.

According to papers before the court, “it was a further term of the arrangement between the parties that should the seed fail to germinate, the plaintiff (Shava) was free to pick up his vehicle and at all material times the vehicle remained the property of the plaintiff.

“Contrary to the defendant’s promise, a period in excess of one year has since lapsed with the seed not having germinated and the plaintiff has realised that the representations made to him by the defendant were fraudulent misrepresentations aimed at defrauding the plaintiff of his motor vehicle . . .

“At the time of making these misrepresentations to the plaintiff, the defendant was in his sober senses and not under any spirit at all and he knew that what he was promising to the plaintiff was not the truth and will never come to pass.”

Prophet Angel has yet to respond to the summons.

Efforts to get a comment from Angel were unsuccessful with his UK contact number not being answered.
