PATEL JA, GUVAVA JA & UCHENA JA
HARARE, 22 JUNE 2017 & 25 JANUARY 2018
T. Mpofu & N. Chamisa, for the appellant
T. Magwaliba, for the respondent
PATEL JA: This is an appeal against the whole judgment of the High Court handed down in Case No. HC 8150/13 on 14 November 2014.
This matter was first argued on 5 June 2015 in relation to the first ground of appeal, to wit, the procedural point that the court a quo had erred in entertaining a challenge to its jurisdiction by way of an exception as opposed to a special plea. Argument was confined to this procedural point on the basis that a decision on that point in favour of the appellant would dispose of the entire appeal.
