Gwisai Under Fire For Allegedly Hiding Court Ruling From Clients

Former Grain Marketing Board (GMB) workers are angry with Munyaradzi Gwisai for allegedly hiding a Court ruling that was in their favor. The workers had approached Gwisai seeking to recover outstanding salaries, pension, housing, funeral, and medical aid contributions.

About 477 GMB workers were dismissed following the infamous Supreme Court Zuva case. GMB former employees believe that they won the case but Gwisai hid court ruling papers from them. One former GMB employe said:

After the Zuva judgment, we were given three months’ notices. We then challenged the dismissal and we won, but I believe Gwisai and GMB lawyers hid the judgment from us.

As per a NewsDay article, there are papers from the labour officer which ordered GMB to pay the claimants a minimum retrenchment package of one month’s salary for every two years worked as compensation for loss of employment. The payment was never made and Gwisai was supposed to make follow-ups.

Speaking to the NewsDay, Gwisai said that GMB paid the workers. He also said that the ruling in question was a draft order which is supposed to be confirmed by the Labour Court. Gwisai further said that the follow-up was no longer possible following mutual separation agreement because workers had already been paid.
