Madhuku criticises MDC-T for asking Makarau to relinquish 2 of her 3 Govt positions

Speaking to The Herald, Constitutional law expert Professor Lovemore Madhuku criticised MDC-T for calling on Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chairperson Rita Makarau to relinquish one of her three Government positions. Apart from being ZEC chairperson, Makarau is also a Supreme Court judge and secretary for Judicial Services Commission.

Said Madhuku:

They included in the Constitution a provision which stipulated that you cannot be chairperson of ZEC when you are not a judge. They were involved in putting up that provision which said you have to be a judge for one to be chairperson of ZEC. As long as that provision is there, it is difficult to understand what they are saying. They cannot have it both ways. That is double standards.
