BOPEU Court Case on August 9

BOPEU President Mogwera and attorney Dutch Leburu at Lobatse High Court on Friday
The urgent Court case involving BOPEU’s two warring parties which was scheduled for the High Court in Lobatse on Friday last week has been moved to August 9, after Paul Mudzimo the lawyer representing anti-Mogwera’s forces requested for time to respond to the bulky answering affidavit filed by BOPEU, in turn the Court also gave BOPEU some time to respond to the applicants’ response.

The case is before Justice  Godfrey Nthomiwa. Meanwhile  on Friday  the attorneys from both sides were hackling over   a critical legal issue as  Mudzimo wanted to bring a fresh application for his clients.

But BOPEU lawyers were unhappy with the stance  as they felt  the other party should  just  withdraw their High Court case and file a new matter.

Self styled acting President of BOPEU,  Philemon Zibane wants the Court to recognise him  and his committee as the legitimate  National Office Bearers after  his people voted to outst the  National Office Bearers(NOB) at a chaotic meeting held at  Cresta on

July 28.

Meanwhile  on Friday President Masego Mogwera and  her NOB  held their first NEC meeting since the chaos. The  NEC meeting held at Blue tree, Maruapula, however  could not form a quorum, the Monitor  has learnt. Sources close to  the news say according to the  BOPEU constitution President Mogwera  is empowered  to  hold another NEC meeting within seven days, even without  forming  a quorum.

Mogwera and her NOB on Saturday  participated at the  Central region’s conference in Palapye, as the various regions of BOPEU hold their  conferences in preparations for the  elective congress due December this year.
