Suspended NetOne chief executive officer, Reward Kangai, has approached the High Court seeking to bar the firm from dragging him to a disciplinary hearing, claiming the telecommunication service provider's board members were biased.

Kangai was suspended without pay and benefits on October 3 this year, after being sent on forced leave, as the mobile operator set in motion investigations pertaining to his alleged abuse of the company's $11 million.

However, through his lawyer, Tendai Biti, Kangai said he would not be subjected to a disciplinary hearing comprised of members that had already made a decision to suspend him.

According to Kangai, his employer had already prejudged him when a decision was made to have him suspended and, as such, inviting him for a disciplinary hearing would not accord him a fair hearing.
