ARTUZ v ZANU PF - Appellant's Heads of Argument

The Chief Justice had ordered that Appellant's Heads of Argument had to be in by the 17ili July 2018. Unfortunately, however, Appellant was only availed with the record of proceedings a day later than the date set by the Chief Justice. The written reasons for judgment were availed in the afternoon of the 16th July 2018 after Appellant's Heads of Argument had already been drafted. The Heads had to be re-drafted as the written reasons for judgment contained new issues which needed to be addressed. Consequently, Appellant filed its Heads of Argument a day later than agreed. Respondents have expressed no objection to the Heads being filed a day out of time. Application shall therefore be made to the Court on the date of hearing for condonation
