Levi Nyagura, the former University of Zimbabwe (UZ) vice-chancellor has been given a temporary pardon after the High Court halted his trial. The court, however, gave him an ultimatum to ensure his court application for review is set-down for hearing by July 24.
The reprieve comes after he had petitioned the court seeking an order to nullify the decision by a Harare magistrate who dismissed his application which sought to have the criminal charges against him withdrawn.
Nyagura argued that the university and the chancellor (Mugabe in this case) are the answerable entities at law to decisions made by the institution.
This is an application to review the decision of the first respondent (Mutevedzi) wherein he dismissed my application for quashing of charges on the basis of disclosing any lawful cause of action.
I also seek that this honourable court reviews the manner in which the first respondent arrived at such a decision because I am of the firm belief that it was arrived at irregularly.
