In his answering affidavit dated 19th of May 2021, in a matter in which he is seeking reversal of a doggy land deal between the City of Harare and controversial justice fugitive Ken Sharpe’s owned “shelf” company Augur Investments, Markham says Moyo’s action in the matter are motivated by demon of corruption.
“It is my respectful contention that Minister July Moyo has failed Zimbabwe. He has failed to uphold the Constitution of Zimbabwe. He has failed to be transparent. He has failed to persuade this court (High Court) that his actions are not motivated by anything other than corruption. He is an embarrassment to the country and to the President,” said Markham.

He said the suggestion by the Minister in his opposing affidavit that he (Markham 1st Applicant) and Jacob Pikicha (3rd Applicant) had no capacity to seek reversal of the controversial dirty deal were shocking.
“The suggestion that a resident of Harare, a former Councilor of the City of Harare, a Member of Parliament, has no locus standi to bring proceedings that raises a public interest matter of housing, of development, of good governance, of land in country which went to war for land, is shocking and unbelievable.
“That a Minister of the Republic of Zimbabwe can seek to bar a litigant from court, from asserting his rights, is a reflection on the quality of that Minister. The suggestion that a serving scheme which the 1st Applicant knows personally does not have a locus standi to question the unfair and illegal allocation of housing land to a rogue company, is shocking and unbelievable.
“The suggestion that a homeless and landless man, the 3rd Applicant cannot have a locus standi to challenge unlawful dispossession of public land, is again shocking. What planet does Minister July Moyo comes from?” Markham said.
