Star Lotto jackpot winner wins High Court case

Star Lotto jackpot winner wins High Court case
Published: 03 March 2014

Bulawayo High Court judge Justice Nokuthula Moyo has ordered Star Lotto Zimbabwe Pvt Ltd to pay Kumbirai Ruguva his August 14, 2013 rich pickings of $306 000 after more than 6 months of legal wrangling. Ruguva, who was represented by lawyer Godwin Sengweni, won the jackpot, but Star Lotto then insisted that he comes up with a suitable investment plan before it could release his prize.

Ruguva said he submitted an investment plan that Star Lotto turned down prompting him to file an application at the High Court in November last year seeking an order compelling the gambling company to pay him the jackpot prize.

Ruguva's lawyer submitted to the High Court that the investment plan demanded by Star Lotto was not part of its terms and conditions. Delivering her order, Justice Moyo said Star Lotto appeared to be clutching at straws in a bid to avoid paying Ruguva.
