Dr Thokozani Khupe welcomes and accepts today’s judgement of the High court of Zimbabwe in Harare.
This victory not only vindicates Dr Khupe and those in the MDC that has always stood for principle over political expediency but it’s a victory for all democratic forces and the rule of law in our country.
This judgement is also a damning indictment to the many so-called legal scholars in the broader the democratic movement who for the past years like the disgraced biblical Pontius Pilate looked the other way when the movement was veering off our founding values with such alarming impunity.
Justice Edith Mushore, reminded us again what it is to be Zimbabwean by choosing courage and integrity over bigotry, misogyny, cowardice and mobocracy.
It is therefore not surprising that those who seek power through violence and fraud are not able to successfully impeach her “Ratio decidendi” and are descending to their lowest weapon of choice which is personal insults and attacks on our judiciary.
Dr Khupe will soon be contacting the SG of the party, Dr Mwonzora, and other elected leaders to see how best they can implement the ruling of the High Court.
Dr Khupe has noted and welcomes the intention by some to appeal the judgment as this will give the superior courts an opportunity to confirm the universal rights of all Zimbabweans to fair and justadministrative justice within any social organisation of their choice.
Dr Khupe demands all members of our movement to unite and be magnanimous at this time irrespective of their chosen side in this debacle.
Honourable Advocate Nelson Chamisa and those close to him must not be verbally abused or belittled in any way, shape or form. He remains an indispensable leader of our movement and to that end, he deserves the uttermost respect from all disciplined cadres of our movement.
