Jonathan Moyo’s Constitutional Court case to be heard on June 14

Professor Jonathan Moyo’s challenge of the constitutionality of his arrest by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) is set to be heard at the Constitutional Court on June 14.

Moyo, his deputy Godfrey Gandawa and Zimdef finance director Nicholas Mapute were arrested by ZACC for abusing nearly $500 000 belonging to Zimdef. Gandawa and Mapute were placed on remand at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts while Moyo instructed his lawyer, Mr Terrence Hussein, to file an urgent interdict at the Constitutional Court before his court appearance. The late Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku last year temporarily suspended Moyo’s prosecution pending determination on whether or not his arrest was done in terms of the Constitution.

Moyo is questioning the constitutionality of his arrest by Zacc and the role played by the police. In the application Moyo argues that Zacc does not have the power to arrest and detain suspects and that the Prosecutor-General does not have the power to order the police to arrest an anyone.
