Outgoing ZINASU president, Archibald Elias Madida has approached the High Court demanding the nullification of the recently held congress which chose T
Madida is also suing Rodrick Fayayo and Mfundo Mlilo, whose interest in the matter was not disclosed, for holding an illegal congress.
Madida’s lawyer, Hopewell Chitima of Sadombe and Partners, revealed in a certificate of urgency that the respondents convened a congress on December 7, 2019, without legal capacity to do so after the president (Madida) had adjourned congress for four weeks to comply with the quorum requirement as provided by the union’s constitution. Chitima added:
Consequent to the convening of the congress, participants did not constitute a quorum to enable them to deal with the congress. Their actions illegally enabled some other members to be purportedly elected at the said congress which was unconstitutional.
Chitima added that the court has to intervene to save the union from suffering serious and irreparable harm.
Madida who was elected in 2017 told the court that congress was held but he called it off and rescheduled it for the 17th of December after 20 out of 54 affiliates attended due to the examination schedules of member institutions thereby failing to reach a quorum.
