On Wednesday 4 December 2018, one before the answering affidavits of its clients were due, the Applicant’s attorneys of record received a letter from Madhlopa & Thenga Incorporated, informing them that their clients’ answering affidavits would not be served on or before 5 December 2018 and asking for an indulgence until 31 January 2019 to furnish these answering affidavits.
Just as had been the case with the State Attorney, the Applicant’s attorneys of record drafted a letter to the Madhlopa & Thenga Incorporated, advising them to approach the Honourable Deputy Judge President of the Pretoria High Court to alter the terms of his directive. This letter was sent to Madhlopa & Thenga Incorporated, with all of the legal representatives of the opposing parties, plus the Honourable Deputy Judge President of the Pretoria High Court in copy.
