Deputy Chief Justice says Bulawayo High Court judges don’t understand the law

Yesterday Deputy Chief Justice Luke Malaba said the manner in which Bulawayo High Court judges handled a matter in which rival camps are fighting for control of the Apostolic Faith Mission of Africa showed that they lacked a clear understanding of the law. High Court judges granted a ruling in favour of a breakaway group led by Reverend Clement Nyathi.

Malaba said:

As we finalise this matter, I must make it known to you that we are worried about the manner in which these cases were handled by the judges at the High Court. It is a clear indication of lack of understanding of the law by judges who are failing to appreciate an interdict. Judges are supposed to be servants and interpreters of the law.

Malaba set aside all the five judgments of the High Court which were being appealed against by the late clergyman’s faction, bringing to rest power struggles that have rocked the church since the beginning of 2014.
