Waverley Blankets Wrangle Takes New Twist As Owner’s Daughter Is Issued With Warrant Of Arrest!

A warrant of arrest for the daughter of the late businessman Victor Cohen has been issued by a Harare magistrate after she failed to appear in court.


Amanda Berkowitz nee Cohen is facing perjury allegations after she reportedly forged a signature on one of the Memorandum documents of the company Waverley Plastics which her father Cohen owned.

The complainant, in this case, is her nephew, Aron Vico, who is the managing director of Waverley Blankets, a subsidiary of Waverley Empire.

The two have been embroiled in a bitter fight over the late Cohen’s empire for years.

The matter is at the close of state case and Berkowitz – Cohen had applied for the discharge saying the state failed to prove a prima facie against her.

Berkowitz – Cohen was expected to have her application for discharge ruling before Magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwiriro.

The Waverley empire wrangle has raged since the 2017 death of Cohen in South Africa, leaving behind a fortune made from textile manufacturing, and several other subsidiary companies, all numbering about 13.

It is reported that a union representing teachers in Zimbabwe has raised alarm after one of their members allegedly received Z$14,600 as his pension benefits after 18 years of service.

The amount translates to US$172 using the official exchange rate and US$120 using the black market rate, which is more accessible to the majority of people.

Raymond Majongwe, the secretary-general of the Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) took to social media to bemoan the compensation that the teacher received following 18 years on the job.
