Alex Tawanda Magaisa, a law lecturer in the United Kingdom has said that it is not prudent to celebrate the interim order that was handed by the High Court directing the Minister of Justice to give the MDC Alliance its money within seven days.
Magaisa said that the ruling is meant to entrap and fool members of the MDC Alliance. Magaisa whois also a former advisor to MDC’s late founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai said:
It’s an interim order which means the other parties have a chance to respond. That is what is going to happen in 10 days time.
Celebrating the interim order is designed to entrap those who celebrate bcoz then they can’t complain and berate the court when it rules the opposite.
The money which is given to political parties by the government under the Political Parties Finance Act was likely to be given to the MDC-T which is now led by reinstated leader Thokozani Khupe.
Magaisa’s view is echoed by Zimbabwean journalist and filmmaker, Hopewell Chin’ono who said that although the court recognised MDCA as a party, “this corrupt regime, may tomorrow order a judge to reverse that for political reasons!”
