Gerald Mlotshwa, the lawyer representing former Zimbabwe cricket team coach Heath Streak has dismissed recent reports that his client has reached a settlement for the payment of dues owed to him by his former employer Zimbabwe Cricket.
The prominent Harare lawyer made the revelations in a response to recent state media report claiming that the two parties had reached a settlement "in a landmark development that brings to an end the ugly legal fallout between the two parties."
In a strongly worded response to the article, Mlotshwa rubbished the report, describing it as "grossly misleading and factually incorrect".
"We make reference to an article appearing in the Herald paper of the 11th instant headed "Streak, ZC Reach Settlement."
"The article insinuates that the parties in this matter have reached a settlement in respect of claims for unlawful dismissal and non-payment of salaries and wages by our clients against Zimbabwe Cricket.
"Kindly note that the article is grossly misleading and is factually incorrect in so far as it purports to paint a picture that there has been any amicable resolution of this matter," he said.
He added: "It is further noted, that, and in a disturbing pattern regarding the reporting of Zimbabwe Cricket's many labour and governance problems by the Herald, no attempt whatsoever had been made to obtain comment from ourselves or our clients in respect of this article."
"For the record, the correspondence quoted in the article, dating back to the 9th June, 2018 had not, as at date of the article, not been responded to by Zimbabwe Cricket's legal practitioners."
