HIGH COURT OF ZIMBABWE

CHIKOWERO J

HARARE, 5, 6 & 12 July 2018

 

 

Urgent chamber application

 

 

T Magwaliba with B Diza, for the applicant

O T Sanyika, for the 1st respondent

R F Mushoriwa, for the 2nd respondent

 

            CHIKOWERO J: I have no doubt at all that this application is not urgent.

            Upon receipt of the application on 3 July 2018 I perused same and instructed that it be set down for hearing on 5 July 2018 at 9:00am.

            The second respondent was not cited. It was not a party to the proceedings at that stage.

            This notwithstanding, around 2:30pm on 3 July 2018 I received copy of letter of the same date wherein the second respondent’s legal practitioners expressed, among other things, Ycob Investments (Pvt) Ltd’s real and substantial interest in the matter. The letter was addressed to the applicant’s legal practitioners and copied to the Registrar. The latter placed the correspondence before me.

            Come 5 July 2018 at 9:00am legal practitioners for all the parties herein appeared before me. Upon the second respondent’s counsel stating that an application for joinder would be filed, I postponed the hearing to the next day to enable such an application to be instituted.

            This resulted in the second respondent’s joinder, by consent, when the parties and their legal practitioners appeared on 6 July 2018 for the hearing.
