High Court Overturns Prosecutor-General’s Decision To Transfer Chief Law Officer

The High Court overturned the decision by Prosecutor General (PG) Mr Kumbirai Hodzi to transfer chief law officer Chris Mutangadura to a district office in Guruve.

Mutangadura, who was director of economic crimes, was on February 7 this year transferred to the rural station with immediate effect, a development he argued was similar to a demotion. High Court judge Justice Happias Zhou ruled that the transfer was flawed because Hodzi has no power to employ, deploy, assign or transfer NPA employees without the approval of the NPA board. He said that even if the PG had the power to do so, transferring a chief law officer to a growth point station was as irrational as transferring a Professor of History from a university to teach the same subject at a primary school.
