After NWR announced in January that Hengari's contract would not be renewed, she filed an urgent High Court application at the end of April. The NWR board and NWR are first and second respondents in the matter.
The matter was removed from the court roll yesterday at Hengari's request.
According to Hengari's lawyer, Sisa Namandje, “The applicant respectfully asks the court to remove the matter from the roll of tomorrow (Thursday) and the applicant will revert to the managing judge in two weeks from today if the matter is not resolved,” the case's status report reads. Hengari's work contract expires on 15 July.
Hengari says NWR and its board were under obligation to comply with the requirements of reasonableness and fairness under the Namibian constitution as well as the doctrine of legality.
“They failed to act in accordance with the above constitutional requirements.”
Hengari further argued that the board's decision was not made at a board meeting “but through a round robin resolution by the board members”.
