HARARE, 20 NOVEMBER 2014 & 28 FEBRUARY 2018
K. Gama, for the applicant
J. Dondo, for the respondent
BERE J: At the conclusion of this case after hearing argument, I granted the following order in favour of the applicant:
“It is ordered:
- That the appeal instituted by the applicant in this court on 14 October 2011 in case number HC CIV ‘A’ 522/11 and dismissed on 16 July 2013 be and is hereby reinstated.
- That there shall be no order as to costs.”
Upon pronouncing my order, Mr Dondo who was representing the respondent sprung to his feet and made an application for leave to appeal against my decision and at the same time demanded full reasons for my judgment. I reserved my reasons for the application for leave to appeal. I provide hereunder my full reasons for my decision as well as my position on the application for leave to appeal as requested by counsel.
