  1. Ku court kunoda evidence kwete kungomuka uchiti ndave kuenda ku court usina chaunacho. Vamwe vanofanira kudzidza kubva kuna Chamisa kuti hazviitwe zvekuenda ku court

  3. I think every Zimbabwean has become a lawyer after the Concourt Show. Now I know latin terms and their meanings, you can share these with your mother in law who will obviously know most of them of cousrse

  4. Why didn’t the court institute the recounting without having to wait for Chamisa’s lawyers to ask? In all fairness that would have been the fairest thing to do. If the constitution does not have that then it should be amended.
