High Court Halts CoA Decision On BHC


Lobatse High Court Judge, Justice Ranier Busang has granted the Botswana Housing Corporation (BHC) an order to stop the sale of its property.

Justice Busang ruled last week that interest payable in terms of the Court of Appeal (CoA) dated January 18, 2019 between BHC and C.P.M Architects was just simple interest and is not cumulative or to be compounded.

He was delivering a judgement in case in which C.P.M Architects is suing the corporation for the sum of more than P30 million as accrued interest for unpaid architectural services rendered. The development follows a previous decision of the CoA to have BHC’s property sold through public auction for failure to pay C.P.M Architects. The High Court order directed that the respondent had been fully paid in terms of the CoA order of January 18 this year. Hence ordered and directed that the respondent shall not execute the CoA decision against BHC.
