Nelson Chamisa’s chief election agent, Jameson Timba has alleged that President Emmerson Mnangagwa allegedly refused to be served with the Constitutional Court application challenging the outcome of the presidential election. Mnangagwa allegedly directed that the papers should be given to the Attorney-General Prince Machaya. Speaking to The Standard, Timba said,
We went there and they refused to accept the papers, so we are now consulting with the deputy sheriff so that he can serve the papers. That position is actually wrong because he is being served as a presidential candidate and not as president of Zimbabwe. The AG is the advisor to the president of Zimbabwe and does not represent the presidential candidate being challenged.
One of Chamisa’s lawyers also said,
When they refuse, what we then do is we give them what is called a certificate of service, to say as a legal practitioner I went there and they refused to accept…When I went there the president said I am not going to accept the papers. He said go to the AG, so he did accept them on behalf of the president, but that was actually procedural.
