Court of appeal session suspended on the basis of Rafa’s judgement

Friday, 17 February, 2017 - 16:00

Court of Appeal, President Ian Kirby announced that the Court of Appeal session which was to resume this morning has been suspended.

This comes after the High Court, Judge Abednico Tafa ruled in favour of National Almagated Local Government contention that President Ian Khama had no powers to reappoint court of appeal judges when their term comes to an end.

The judgement further stated that Khama had no powers to prescribe the numbers of the court of appeal since those powers rested with parliament.

Rafa’s judgement indicated that re-appointment of some of the judges by Khama was constitutionally invalid.

The judgement has barred most of the High Court Judges from presiding over cases at the court of appeal which resulted in the suspension of the session today.
