Higher Education minister, Jonathan Moyo yesterday requested for time to file his opposing papers to a High Court application filed by a Harare vendor seeking an order compelling the police to arrest him.
Prof Moyo’s lawyer Advocate Lewis Uriri, instructed by Mr Terrence Hussein of Hussein, Ranchhod and Company, said he protested the delay in serving his client with both the application and notice of set down,
Our client was only served with the papers shortly before the hearing of the matter in the afternoon. We also protested the fact that the application and its imminent date of hearing was already public knowledge since the media had written and published it before our client was served.
Moyo’s lawyer also confirmed to NewsDay that the matter has been postponed to October 25.
