Court Bailiffs at Mazabuka magistrate’s court yesterday swung into action and seized a school mini bus belonging to Musikili private primary school following a court order to recover K 15.9 million owed to three retrenched workers.
A ZANIS news crew that visited the school witnessed the seizure of a TOYOTA Coaster mini bus registration number ABA 8885, which has since been parked at Mazabuka Magistrate court premises.
According to the bailiffs, the school management has been given five days in which to meet all the costs involved failure to which the bus would be auctioned.
Three members of staff, who were retrenched, took the matter to the Industrial Relations court after they failed to reason with school management over payment of their terminal benefits.
The Industrial Relations Court ruled in favour of the three retrenched workers by ordering management to pay interest to their claims.
The three employees are Franscisca Chisuta, Royce Hamalambe and Judicial Halubanza.
And Ms Chisuta told ZANIS in Mazabuka that she was happy that finally justice had been offered to her and her colleagues.
Musiklili primary is owned by two white sisters and offers classes from grades One to Seven.
