HIGH COURT OF MALAWI
CIVIL CAUSE NO. 978 OF 2000
HONOUR, M.C.C. MKANDAWIRE,
Mr. Nyirongo of
Counsel for the plaintiff
Chilenga of Counsel for the defendant
Mrs. Msusa Official Interpreter
R U L I N G
is an application to amend the writ and statement of claim.
Basically the plaintiffs Counsel would like to remove the
defendant as a party.
defendants Counsel have objected to this application. They aver
that this application is contrary to the spirit of the
ruling of this
court of the 31st
of May 2001.
have looked at the nature of the application made by the plaintiffs
Counsel. I have also looked at the objection raised by
defendants Counsel. I indeed concur with the observations made by
my ruling of the 30th
of May 2001, I had put matters very clear that the plaintiff should
submit this matter before the Commissioner by virtue of Section
the Workmans Compensation Act, 2000. It would however appear that
instead of doing that; the plaintiffs Counsel is
trying to divert
from abiding by the order of the Court. I would therefore dismiss
this application with costs.
in Chambers this 30th
day of July 2001 at Lilongwe.
