Johannesburg - An interdict by national consumer commission
head to prevent Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies from terminating her
contract was dismissed in the Johannesburg Labour Court, according to a report
Mamodupi Mohlala-Mulaudzi approached the court after Davies
sent her a letter on May 21 informing her of his intentions not to renew her
contract when it expired on September 3, the Saturday Star reported.
Her application was dismissed with costs by the court on
Judge Cele, in dismissing the application, said Davies had
complied with the government's labour procedure and it was inappropriate for
Mohlala-Mulaudzi to complain before a new candidate had been appointed.
"I can't believe (Judge HS) Cele failed to see that
letter. He (Davies) states clearly that he won't renew my contract,"
Mohlala-Mulaudzi told the newspaper.
She said she would appeal and apply for her job.
Mohlala-Mulaudzi first took Davies' department to court in
May when her position was advertised, stating her employment agreement was
violated as she was not consulted before the advertisement was placed.
The Labour Court ruled on May 18 that Mohlala-Mulaudzi's
contract would end in September.
