Chiweshe wins $308k case against former employer ZBC

Zimbabwe: Labour Court judge, Justice Lawrence Masimba Murasi, recently gave the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) a 30-day ultimatum to pay its former general manager, radio programming, Allan Chiweshe, $308 898 in unpaid terminal benefits after upholding an arbitral award in his favour.

The application seeking confirmation of a draft ruling was filed by arbitrator Letwin Sigauke, in her official capacity, after making a determination that the national broadcaster had unlawfully dismissed Chiweshe and ought to have paid him compensation.

However, ZBC, through its lawyers, had opposed the application, saying the confirmation of the award should be stayed pending the resolution of a civil dispute pitting ZBC against its other ex-employees at the High Court.

But Justice Murasi declined to grant a stay of the proceedings, saying the two matters were clearly unrelated.
