Advocate Sylvester Hashiti, a member of Nelson Chamisa's legal team during 2018 presidential election result challenge, has been evicted from The Chambers - Advocates of Zimbabwe offices at Old Mutual Centre in Harare.

He failed to pay US$24 000 in rental arrears.

Hashitui's membership in The Chambers - Advocates of Zimbabwe has also been terminated

At some point, Nelson Chamisa tried to get the police to drop a domestic violence investigation involving Advocate Hashiti, whose wife Emma made a formal police report of alleged severe domestic assault.

On April 9, Adv Hashiti, allegedly beat up his wife who had stumbled upon his conversation on a social media platform with a lady only identified as Maureen. Sources said when Emma confronted her husband, he allegedly lost his temper and assaulted her with fists, choked her and pulled her hair, according to a police report.

Emma then fled the house and went to report the alleged assault at Borrowdale Police Station.

But the following morning, Adv Hashiti allegedly went to the police station with Chamisa to try and have the report withdrawn.
