LATEST: ConCourt dismisses Zuva Petroleum managers’ appeal

The Constitutional Court has ruled that the constitutional appeal by two former Zuva Petroleum managers against termination of employment on notice was a nullity because the pair has no legal right of appeal.

Justice Vernanda Ziyambi ruled that an appeal can only be properly noted at the Constitutional Court when the Supreme Court is alleged to have erred in determining some constitutional issues raised before it.

In the case of the two managers–Don Nyamande and Kingstone Donga, no constitutional issues were raised by the appellants and Justice Ziyambi held that the two had no right to appeal to the Constitutional Court.

This marks the end of the duo’s labour challenge, a development that gives the employers greenlight to continue firing workers on notice.
