Kgalagadi Breweries Limited (KBL) has withdrawn a case against the State following the lifting of the alcohol ban on Tuesday this week.
The largest brewer had filed an appeal seeking for the High Court ruling to be overturned but President Mokgweetsi Masisi lifted the ban before the due date for hearing of the matter.
Subsequently, in a notice of withdrawal seen by Mmegi, the brewer indicated a desire to withdraw the matter.
“The applicant hereby wishes to withdraw the matter from the roll,” reads the notice.The company was suing President Masisi, director of Health and Attorney General.
Monthe Marumo (Incorporating Molatlhegi Attorneys) represents Masisi, AG and director of Health while Minchin & Kelly represents KBL.
