The case deals with the question of whether a High Court judge is an employee of the state or not, in light of the constitutional principle of independence of the judiciary. The question arose as a point in lamine in an application by a judge of the High Court of Namibia against the government of Namibia. The judge sought an order directing the respondent to desist from unilaterally altering the applicant's conditions of employment by depriving him of his entitlement to the provision of water, electricity and refuse disposal free of charge and at the cost of the respondent.
