Kasukuwere’s $20 million gay lawsuit against Mliswa struck off roll

Posted by Tayana

Local government minister Saviour Kasukuwere’s $20 million damages claim against Norton MP Temba Mliswa yesterday failed to take off at the High Court after the matter was struck off the roll due to the non-attendance for a pre-trial conference by both parties.

Kasukuwere’s lawyer Jonathan Samukange confirmed the matter, which was set to be heard before Justice David Mangota, had been struck off the roll, adding any interested party would have to approach the Registrar to have the matter re-set for hearing.

The Zanu PF national commissar filed the claim sometime in 2014 when he was Environment minister and when Mliswa was still MP for Hurungwe West. Kasukuwere filed a lawsuit after Mliswa allegedly attacked cabinet ministers, among them Kasukuwere, describing them as “gay gangsters”.
