10 lawyers will today be interviewed by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to replace Advocate Ray Goba, who stepped down while awaiting a disciplinary tribunal.
JSC initially published 11 nominees, but Mr Tavengwa Hara’s name did not appear on the interview programme posted at the venue. Sources who spoke to The Herald said he has since withdrawn from the race. JSC acting secretary, Walter Chikwana told The Herald that the interviews will start today and end until all candidates are interviewed. Said Chilkwana:
We are now ready for the interviews. They start tomorrow (today) at 9am at Rainbow Towers Hotel and ends until all the candidates get a chance to respond to the interview questions. As usual a panel comprising JSC commissioners will put questions to the candidates while members of the public with an interest in the interviews listening. Everything will be done in terms of the Constitution and in the spirit of fairness and transparency.
