Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com, MDC Alliance organising secretary Amos Chabiya confirmed that the coalition’s application seeking to overturn a police ban on Nelson Chamisa’s Kwekwe thank you rally will now be heard on Thursday before Bulawayo High Court judge Nokuthula Moyo.
MDC Alliance immediately approached the High Court in Bulawayo on Friday with any urgent chamber application after the police barred Chamisa from holding his first thank you rally citing the current typhoid outbreak in Gweru. The application could not be heard on Friday and was pushed to today only to be further moved to Thursday. MDC Alliance’s lawyer, Jabulani Maphosa told NewZimbabwe.com on Monday that although he had heard that the matter had been set for the 6th of September, he was still to be furnished with the notice of set down date by the High Court registrar. Chibaya however confirmed the postponement and questioned the logic behind such a move. Said Chibaya:
I am in Bulawayo and I can confirm that the matter has been postponed to Thursday this week. As a party, we do not see the logic in setting down a date for an urgent matter which was supposed to be heard on Friday last week.
