ORDER




Upon
hearing the applicant
and the respondent, the court finds
that:





  • The
    115 days leave claim has not been supported by any evidence and it
    is dismissed.





  • The
    contract agreement claim for K261 936-00 has no merit, it is
    dismissed.





  • The
    282 off duty hours have not been proved to the requisite standard,
    the court needs proof from the authorizing officer to show
    that
    Applicant had earned the off duty hours. In that regard the
    respondent is to bring two officers, namely, Likatu and Lipenga
    to
    show whether the money claimed was earned.





  • The
    retirement claim has been withdrawn by the applicant and it is
    struck off.




The other
claims like basic salary for September 2005 to March 2006 must be
pleaded, so too the claim for house rent. A court clerk
can help with
the amendment Form. Unfortunately costs are not awarded in this court
therefore the claim for a transport cost to
court is dismissed.




Pronounced
in Open Court this
11th day of April 2006 at
Blantyre.
