Justice Luke Malaba CJ said that Zimbabwe’s judiciary is independent and not subject to influence from anyone.
Malaba made the remarks while speaking at the inaugural Herbert Chitepo Memorial lecture at the Great Zimbabwe University’s Herbert Chitepo Law School on Friday. He said:
We will be useless if we are not independent. Independence is a responsibility which is a big responsibility to ensure that the law is the master.
Malaba asserted that the country observes the rule of law as there is a clear separation of powers.
He added that the Constitutional Court and other courts always strive to maintain the rule of law and to promote and fulfil the fundamentals of human rights and freedom.
