FORMER Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Lands, Inutu Suba is seeking for leave to apply for judicial review in the High Court to compel the Secretary to cabinet not to grab the GRZ vehicle registration number GRZ 567CK after relieving her off her duties.
Ms Suba stated that she is entitled to be using the said vehicle and also to purchase it and described Dr Roland Msiska’s decision to request her to surrender the Ford Ranger as unjustified and discriminatory.
She is now asking the court to prohibit or prevent Dr Msiska or any other government official under his instruction from seizing the said vehicle without offering her entitlement or replacement acceptable to her.
Ms Suba asked the court to grant her leave to apply for Judicial Review to prohibit the Secretary to Cabinet from altering the applicant’s conditions of service entitling her to a personal to holder motor vehicle unconditionally as well as purchasing it upon separation from Government.
Ms Suba said the order directing her to surrender the vehicle to government and informing her that she was not entitled to purchase it is a total breach of her Conditions of Service, unreasonable, discriminatory and unlawful.
The applicant is now claiming damages for inconvenience, deprivation, anguish and embarrassment.
“Compelling me to surrender the vehicle and denying me entitlement or an alternative motor vehicle and an opportunity to purchase one is unlawful and dangerous,” she said.
