We Cannot Hear You If You File Papers In Support Of Chamisa: Chief Justice Tells Losing Presidential Candidates

Chief Justice Luke Malaba is reported to have instructed all losing presidential candidates that they cannot file any court papers in support of Nelson Chamisa’s presidential challenge. The Chief Justice said the candidates can only file court papers if they oppose Chamisa’s petition. Chamisa is seeking to have the results of the presidential election reversed by the Constitutional Court after concluding that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) manipulated the results in favour of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

After a pre-trial conference on Thursday, MDC Alliance secretary-general, Douglas Mwonzora said,

What the Chief Justice said is that you can only file if you are opposed to the application. If you are in support of the application, you had your own time to file.

United Democratic Alliance (UDA) presidential candidate Daniel Shumba said,

We can’t have anybody to say if you are supporting Chamisa we can’t hear you. We can only hear anyone supporting Mnangagwa. Respondents must be heard, you cannot muzzle people. There is nothing in the Constitutional Court that allows for the muzzling of litigants.

Build Zimbabwe Alliance losing presidential candidate, Noah Manyika also said,

… Zanu PF has always wanted to dismiss this matter on a technicality and I don’t know how legally or politically this can be sustained.

The matter will be heard at the Constitutional Court on Wednesday.
