Botswana Baylor Children’s Clinical Centre of Excellence will fork out over P1m after losing a suit lodged against them by a former doctor.

The doctor, Marape Marape, had instituted action through a writ of summons on January 2014 against Baylor Clinic, following his dismissal from a job he held from July 4, 2013 to December 2013 as a public health specialist. The Clinic’s Executive Director, Professor Gabriel Anabwani, dismissed Marape on condition that he had missed two-days of work, which he had attributed to ill health and was given sick leave.

Through a court judgement delivered recently by Lobatse High Court Judge, Godfrey Nthomiwa, Marape was awarded payments in the form of damages for unlawful termination of employment in the sum of P854,550, prorated gratuity in the sum of P71,212.50, accrued annual leave pay of P20,500.53, interest at a 10 percent per annum from December 2013 to date of full payment and the cost of suit.
