  1. Charity Tonongera,
  2. Vavariro Gabi,
  3. Chiuta Dube,
  4. Patricia Sanganza-Kamwanda,
  5. Tamara Chibindi,
  6. Nomagugu Maphosa,
  7. Grace Tupiri
  8. Samkelisiwe Gumbo

Chief Magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi said this to the Daily News:

The swearing-in of new magistrates will go a long way in easing pressure on the current bench. The establishment of 250 magistrates that exists at the moment was set up in the 1980s and as the popula- tion of the country grew, there has not been a corresponding expansion of that establishment.

When we look at 250 magistrates against a population of about 15 million people, there is certainly a disparity in that regard. This means a single magistrate has a mammoth task as he or she is expected to preside over hundreds of thousands of cases in a single year. The magistrates receive not less than 100 000 cases that come through our various courts across the country
