Madhuku Challenges UZ Decision To Deny Him Faculty of Law Post

University of Zimbabwe (UZ) constitutional law lecturer and National Constitutional Assembly leader, Lovemore Madhuku last week wrote to UZ registrar Noah Mutongoreni, demanding reasons for his failure to be appointed dean of the faculty of law at the institution.

In his letter, Madhuku argues the person who succeeded did not meet the requirements of the job as advertised. He also demands to be furnished with reasons why he failed to land the post in terms of section 3(1) (c) of the Administrative Justice Act (Chapter 10:28) as read with section 68 of the Constitution. Said Madhuku:

Thank you for your letter dated March 7, 2018, informing me that my above application was not successful. I have since become aware that Dr Innocent Maja’s application was successful. I, hereby, advise that the decision communicated in your aforesaid letter adversely affects my interests and legitimate expectations. For the avoidance of doubt, my legitimate expectation when I applied and participated in the interview was to succeed if, on a reasonable consideration, (that) I met the requirements as stated in ordinance 44 and captured in the advertisement and no other candidate had a better claim.
