RULING

Having heard both counsel on this issue of whether the matter should d be heard denovo, it is our considered opinion that the matter was forwarded to this court by error since this court was originally meant to receive cases from High Court that were not part heard. It is in the interest of both parties, in order to save time that, the matter be heard by the trial Judge who had already closed the plaintiffs’ case. It is so ordered.
