Henrietta Rushwaya has retained the ZMF Presidency a few days after a supreme court appeal that had been dismissed on technicalities.
By Rudairo Mapuranga
Rushwaya earlier lost the Presidency through a High court ruling which favoured Zvishavane-Mberengwa Miners Association who accused Rushwaya of clinging to the top post through unorthodox means.
Rushwaya then appealed to the supreme court, automatically she retained the top post as her appeal had been dismissed because her lawyers did not go to inspect the record hence the dismissal.
“Reference is made to the notice of appeal you filed on April 4, 2019. It is noted that you did not comply with Rule 17(11) for the inspection of record with the stipulated time in terms of the Supreme Court Rules, 2018. In terms of sub-rule 17 (12) of the aforementioned Rules the appeal is deemed to have been abandoned and therefore dismissed.” read the supreme court judgement that had thrown her case away.
Rushwaya will continue at the helm of the ZMF until supreme court ruling.
