Zanu-PF Accuses Chamisa Of Intimidating Constitutional Court Judges

In a statement yesterday, Zanu-PF National Secretary for Finance Patrick Chinamasa accused MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa of interfering with the judicial processes ahead of tomorrow’s hearing by the Constitutional Court of a case in which he is contesting President Mnangagwa’s victory in the July 30 presidential election.

Chinamasa said Chamisa’s utterances during a press conference held yesterday were meant to instill fear in judges so they may, as a result of fear, subvert the law in his favour. Said Chinamasa:

Zanu-PF notes with growing concern continued attempts by Nelson Chamisa to intimidate the Bench ahead of the Constitutional Court case on the just-ended harmonised elections which has been set down for hearing on Wednesday, 22nd August, 2018. His statement this afternoon which is completely bereft of any legal grounding or basis, builds on many such well documented utterances and threats which he made throughout the campaign period, including declaring himself the inevitable winner well ahead of the polls, and well before vote counting and the announcement of results; threatening spiralling violence should the vote go against him and, threatening to spoil matters for the eventual electoral winner.
