REFLECTING ON THE APPLICABILITY OF FREEDOM, SANCTITY AND PRIVITY OF CONTRACT IN ZIMBABWEAN LAW OF CONTRACT

BY INNOCENT MAJA1

 

ABSTRACT

This paper examines the applicability of the long established contractual doctrines of freedom of contract, sanctity of contract and privity of contract in modern day Zimbabwean law of contract. It argues that even though the three doctrines are still applicable, there are instances where they have not be strictly adhered to and in some cases redefined.

Key words: freedom of contract, sanctity of contract, privity of contract, contract.
