In an interview with The Herald, Judicial Service Commission (JSC) acting secretary Walter Chikwana denied reports Chief Justice Luke Malaba met President Mnangagwa last month over the recruitment of Zimbabwe’s substantive Prosecutor-General (PG).

Chikwana’s interview follows reports by some sections of the media that the names of the top three performers in the public interviews held last year were rejected as Secretary for Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Virginia Mabiza preferred Acting PG Mr Kumbirai Hodzi. Said Chikwana:

The Chief Justice never met the President concerning the recruitment of the Prosecutor-General. I also did not attend any such meeting. That is false. In fact, the Chief Justice was on leave and was not in Harare during the said period. He only resumed duty on January 9 this year
