Chief Justice Luke Malaba Heckled, Humiliated In Parliament

Chief Justice Luke Malaba was heckled and booed by opposition supporters on Tuesday when he came to preside over the swearing in of the Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Mudenda and Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Tsitsi Gezi. The ceremony had to be delayed for close to 20 minutes as the opposition supporters sang and danced chanting.  The opposition supporters felt aggrieved by the way the Malaba led Constitutional Court handled the electoral petition filed by Nelson Chamisa challenging the results of the 2018 election.

Mbavha, Mbavha, Mbavha (Thief, Thief, Thief)

Hatidi Malaba muno imbavha (We don’t want Malaba in here, he is a thief)

The ruling Zanu-PF members of parliament tried to drown out the chants by shouting the campaign slogan “ED Pfee” but were ultimately unsuccessful. Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Ziyambi Ziymabi also unsuccessfully tried to restore order. Malaba was able to swear in the two speakers eventually.

  1. If its true they rigged and chief justice Malaba ruled in favour of the rigged elections, then this man is nothing but a chief justice from hell. All the suffering of people of Zimbabwe is blamed upon you Luke Malaba. If its really true what happened, then you deserve to go hell when you die. You are a horrible man.

  2. ..its most unfortunate that we are stuck with immature individuals and organisations who trivialise matters as happened in this instance. The office should in all instances be separated from the bearer …..we may or may not like the person and even his decisions but it is most uncivilised to trivialise the office. This applies in many instances including at workplaces, in our homes and the community at large. The MDC Alliance had come of age but there has been a degeneration and if it were in education one could say after completing ‘O’Level some decided to go and start Grade 7 again…shame. There must be a letter of apology to the Office of the Chief Justice and to Zimbabweans at large. Even in the Western countries that MDC Alliance et al love to run to the institutions are respected whether or not you agree with the office bearers.
