Short summary:

Civil Procedure, Contract Law

Headnote and holding:

The court considered whether the matter was time
barred, and whether the appellant had been

unlawfully retrenched and whether he was entitled
to the relief sought.
The court held that as the retrenchment had taken
long before the application to set it aside, it would
be ingenuous to allow it. That the there was no
distinction from common law contracts and the
employment contract as they were all governed by
the law on limitation.
