Supreme Court bars Zibani from participating in Chief Justice case

The Supreme Court has barred law student Romeo Taombera Zibani from participating in the hearing of the appeal filed by the Judicial Services Commission (JSC) challenging an interdict by Justice Charles Hungwe.  The interdict  suspended interviews for selecting the new Chief Justice, to replace Godfrey Chidyausiku. However, the interviews, went on ahead despite the interdict when the JSC noted an appeal at the Supreme Court.

Zibani and his lawyer Jonthan Samkange, were barred from taking part in today’s hearing because they did not file their heads of argument. The bench refused to hear them. The court will instead hear oral arguments from the Judicial Services Commission and Government lawyer Mr Ephraim Mukucha.

The case is being heard by three Supreme Court judges

Justice Bharatkumar Patel
Justice Ben Hlatshwayo and
Justice Vernanda Ziyambi
