Embattled NetOne CEO Lazarus Muchenje was yesterday granted a reprieve by the High court which suspended his employment contract termination till the labour dispute was settled in court, The Herald reports.
The matter was heard in justice Chinamora’s chambers where the NetOne Board CEO asked for a postponement of the matter in which Muchenje was challenging his contract termination.
Justice Chinamora granted Netone its request and deferred the case to 4 August 2020 but suspended Muchenje’s employment contract termination till the matter was finalised.
