Firty-two former Lusaka City Council (LCC) workers have discontinued the matter in which they sued the Council demanding more than K2 million, being the total accrued terminal benefits.
Robert Mwanza and 41 others were employed as general workers between January 2020 and July, 2022.
They are claiming payment of K2,326,648.46 with interest and damages for mental stress and anguish arising out of the non-payment of the said money.
The complainants said by letters dated July 19, 2022, they were notified of the non-renewal of their contracts of employment.
In a latest development on the case before the Lusaka High Court, the 42 have discontinued proceedings against LCC without stating reasons.
“Take notice that the plaintiffs herein wholly discontinue this action against the defendant,” read the notice.
