Officially opening the 2019 Legal Year in Harare on Monday, Chief Justice Luke Malaba said there is need to establish more criminal courts in the capital.
He said he instructed the Acting Secretary for JSC to engage all the relevant stakeholders, including Harare City Council, so that they decentralise operations to populous suburbs. Said Malaba:
The facilities at the two criminal courts (Mbare and Rotten Row) can no longer cope with the workload coming from the numerous police stations in and around the city. There is, therefore, a need to increase the number of courts servicing Harare Metropolitan. To that end, I have instructed the Acting Secretary (for JSC) to engage all the relevant stakeholders, including Harare City Council, so that we decentralise operations to populous places like Mabvuku, Tafara, Epworth, Budiriro and others.
