Kasukuwere withdraws Supreme Court appeal, concedes he has no case

Minister of  Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere yesterday withdrew his Supreme Court application.  He conceded that he had no case to argue before the court.  He had applied to the Supreme Court after the Bulawayo High Court had overturned his decision to suspend Gweru Mayor Hamutendi Kombayi and 10 councillors.  Kasukuwere had felt aggrieved by this decision and had appealed to the Supreme Court.  However, yesterday he conceded that he had no case to argue  after he had acted in contravention of the law.

Justice Elizabeth Gwaunza, who was sitting with Justices Bharat Patel and Chinembiri Bhunu, during a Supreme Court circuit in Bulawayo yesterday said:

We accept the withdrawal of the appeal by the appellant. There is no legal impediment to such an action and therefore the case is hereby removed from the roll. The appellant will bear the costs of the case.
