High Court judge Justice Charles Hungwe reserved his ruling on whether the application submitted by Kwese TV distributor, Dr Dish, was urgent or not. Dr Dish is challenging the decision by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) to cancel its broadcasting licence. Dr Dish is being represented in the suit by the law firm Nyambirai and Mtetwa, which has Strive Masiyiwa’s associate Tawanda Nyambirai as one of its partners.
Advocate Thembinkosi Magwaliba who is representing the respondents, BAZ and its chief executive officer Obert Muganura, last night said:
I am not aware if the ruling has been made because judgement was reserved and the judge said that the ruling would be ready by today but nothing has been communicated as yet.
However, Justice Hungwe dismissed preliminary point which had been raised by Muganyura who had argued that the urgent application should not have been brought to the High Court. He claimed that the application should have been made at Administrative Court.
