The Constitutional Court (ConCourt) on Thursday handed the Zimbabwe People First leader,  Joyce Mujuru a 15 day ultimatum  to submit her heads of arguments on her bond notes case.

That will enable the ConCourt to set a date on which Mujuru's challenge would be heard before a full bench.

"In terms of Practice Direction No 2 of 2013, the applicant is required to file heads of argument within 15 days from the date of service of the letter.

"In terms of paragraph 9(11), the respondent is required within 10 days of receiving the applicant's heads of argument to file with the registrar its heads of argument. Please not that if you fail to comply with the above, the application shall be regarded as abandoned and shall be deemed to have been dismissed".

A few months ago, Mujuru approached the ConCourt challenging the introduction of bond notes, but the court ruled that her contestation was premature because the surrogate currency was not yet in circulation.

The court advised her to wait and file her challenge after the notes had hit the streets.
