Former Chief Justice Luke Malaba Appeals Against High Court Ruling
28 May 2021

By A Correspondent| Former Chief Justice Luke Malaba has filed an appeal against the High Court ruling that nullified the extension of his tenure of office beyond 70 years.

Through his lawyers, Kantor and Immerman, Malaba wants the whole ruling set aside arguing that it was premised on a wrong interpretation of the law.

“The court a quo erred at law in failing to uphold the objection in limine to the effect that since no leave had been obtained by the 1st Respondent to sue the 2nd to 18th Appellants in the Court a quo, the 1st Respondent was not properly before the court a quo, and in so doing, the Court a quo failed to give effect to the bar operating against the 1st Respondent arising from the peremptory provisions of Rule 18 of the High Court Rules,” reads part of Malaba’s appeal.
