Tsvangirai, who operates a mining business in Kwekwe, allegedly used electricity at Gothi 4 Mine from January 31 2009 to February 15 this year without paying.
The electricity was consumed through Zesa account number 900017178-003 for Gothic 4 Mine of Kwekwe during the period in question.
The summons were prepared by ZETDC lawyers Masawi and Partners and filed at the High Court on June 19 this year.
“Despite demand, the defendant has thus failed, neglected or refused to pay the capital sum together with collection commission and or costs,” read part of the summons.
ZETDC is claiming US$16 546,72 together with interest at the prescribed rate.
The lawsuit was filed at the time the power utility was crying foul over unpaid bills to the tune of US$600 million.
Various individuals and companies countrywide had their electricity disconnected over huge bills and several cases have since spilled into the courts.
