An appeal in which Botswana Public Employees Union’s (BOPEU) first deputy president, Olefile Monakwe, is seeking to overturn a High Court decision that recognises suspended Union president Masego Mogwera, as the chairperson of Babereki Investments, will be heard on July 17.

Court of Appeal (CoA) justice Isaac Lesetedi postponed the matter Friday after it emerged that the parties were not prepared to argue the appeal. The postponement comes after Gabriel Kanjabanga for the applicant told the court that the respondents served them late. Kanjabanga is representing BOPEU first deputy president, Olefile Monakwe in the matter.

The beleaguered BOPEU business wing’s board chairperson recently succeeded at the High Court in her bid to challenge her dismissal from the company along with three other directors.
