According to a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, Chipenzi stated that he entered into a contract of employment with FODEP for the period January 20, 2011 to December 19, 2011 which contract was renewable every year with the last renewal done from January 20, 2015 to July 31, 2016.
He said that on February 13, 2016 five months before the end of his last contract, he was summarily dismissed.
Chipenzi disclosed that at the time of his employment was entitled to a separation package comprising salary arrears, personal to holder vehicle, leave days and School fees.
He said that his salary arrears were partially paid for in cash and through permanent ownership of his personal to holder vehicle.
Chipenzi is demanding leave days that were not paid for the period January 20, 2011 to February 2016.
He has accused his ex-employers of having neglected and failed to pay the balance on his school fees for his master degree program at the University of Zambia as pledged.
The former Executive Director said has tried to engage the defendants on the need for them to expeditiously pay him his dues taking into account the manner of his dismissal which did not afford him the time and opportunity to make alternative financial arrangements for his family but to no avail.
