CHIKOWERO J: On June the 22nd 2018 around 9.00pm l received a phone call from the Registrar of the High Court. I was one of the two duty judges. She had received two urgent chamber applications for stay of sale of dwellings.
Both properties were due to be sold by the second respondent through public auction at 10.00am the following morning. She read the contents of the certificate and affidavit of urgency to me, over the phone.
Thereafter, I immediately drove to the High Court building. I perused the records. I instructed the Registrar to set down both applications for hearing for 9.00am on the next day, an hour before the sale.
