Sibanda was suspended by BNYC effective from 10 April to allow investigations on allegations of maladministration.

Sibanda sought an order stopping BNYC from evicting him from the BNYC’s house in Gaborone West pending the final determination of the case. Uyapo Ndadi for BNYC said the application filed by Sibanda is not urgent since it has not met the necessary requirements.
