High Court orders Kangai off NetOne premises

By ZBC Reporter

FORMER NetOne Chief Executive Officer, Reward Kangai’s bid to continue residing at his former employer’s premises in Borrowdale hit a snag after the High Court ordered him to vacate the premises.

High Court judge, Justice Muzofa has ordered former NetOne Chief Executive Officer, Reward Kangai off the mobile telephone company’s premises situated at Number 31 Shotterry Road in Greystone Park, Harare to pave way for the mobile giant to carry out its operations without any disturbances.

Circumstances are that in 2017 Kangai who was the NetOne Chief Executive Officer had his contract of employment terminated and ordered off the premises.

Thereafter the two parties have been in and out of the courts regarding the legality of the move.

Kangai refused to vacate the premises arguing that his contract of employment entitled him to some housing allowance which he claimed to have not been paid.

He also argued that the termination of his contract was unlawful hence he is entitled to reside at the premises.

However, in his ruling High Court Judge Justice Muzofa ruled that Kangai had no valid reasons to remain at the premises before ordering him to vacate the place.
