HARARE – More pressure is mounting for controversial land baron Kenneth Raydon Sharpe to come back to Zimbabwe, as the US$205 million Pomona land heist saga deepens, currently the T and C construction company directors are at the courts for erecting an illegal billboard along Borrowdale Road cautioning members of the public not to buy stands at Pomona City.
Last week the directors of T and C construction company appeared in court facing criminal nuisance charges after they allegedly erected an illegal billboard along Borrowdale Road in Harare. The Billboard was erected in December 2020 along Borrowdale Road in Harare.

Grant Russell and Mark Sthrathen who appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Shane Kubonera stand accused of erecting a billboard written, “Cautionary statement to the members of the public. Pomona city. Land subject to litigation. Title deeds for land has been placed as security, under case number, HC4599/19, HC5989/19, HC10315. Purchase of stands is at risk of Purchaser.”
The billboard allegedly erected by Grant Russell and Mark Sthrathen along Borrowdale Road in December 2020; it has emerged that the duo is part of T and C construction which was subcontracted by controversial businessman Kenneth Raydon Sharpe for the construction of Airport Road.
“T and C Construction was subcontracted to construct Airport Road and they have not been paid to date, they were promised land by Sharpe but he has not honoured his promise, the same way he duped another Harare businessman George Katsimberis over US$4 million after they partnered to develop Pokugara Estate,” an anonymous source said.
The source added that Pomona City is a subject of litigation as it was fraudulently given to Sharpe as payment for the construction of Airport.
“Instead of paying T and C construction, Sharpe is now developing and selling it alone, so there has been a number of litigations against the transfer of Pomona land but Sharpe continues to sell the land, this is what these guys were trying to warn people against,” added the source.
Ken Sharpe is currently at large as he faces several cases before the Courts.
