Zimbabwean Minister Sues South African Airways

The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) has come out in full support of Environment, Water and Climate minister, Oppah Muchinguri’s lawsuit against South African Airways (SAA).

The lawsuit seeks to compel South African Airways to pay $877 435 in meteorological weather fees.

Sometime in 2014 Muchinguri approached the High Court demanding payment from SAA for allegedly using the Harare International Airport and the Victoria Falls Airport without paying the fees since 2006.

However, SAA has vowed it will not pay the amount since there was nothing at law called “meteorological weather fees”.

The airline accused the Environment, Water and Climate Ministry and the CAAZ of duplicating roles and failing to communicate with each other, resulting in the current confusion.

But, in its response to SAA averments after being joined as a party to the lawsuit, CAAZ said the SAA was at law liable to pay the demanded fees and dismissed claims that it had duplicated roles with the Environment, Water and Climate Ministry.
