Paweni v Minister of State Security 1984 (1) ZLR 236 H Crt: Vagueness of reasons supplied to detainee. Remedy by an appropriate order.

Smith J:

Vagueness of reasons supplied to detainee in terms of s21 of the Emergency Power Regulations. Section not complied with if reasons too vague to enable detainee to make representations concerning the propriety of his detention. Failure to comply with the section does not invalidate the section. It must initially be remedied by an appropriate order.
