Justice Erica Ndewere Suspended

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday suspended High Court judge Justice Erica Ndewere and appointed a three-member tribunal to investigate her for alleged misconduct following a recommendation by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

The tribunal is chaired by retired judge Justice Simbi Mubako and other members are Yvonne Masvora and Charles Warara.

Earlier this week, the JSC recommended that a tribunal be set up to investigate whether or not Justice Ndewere was fit to hold office.

The JSC accused Justice Ndewere of failure to clear her workload in reasonable time and failure to properly study the file on a thief’s conviction and sentence when she set aside a jail term.

However, the judge lashed out at Chief Justice Luke Malaba, accusing him of trying to fix her for defying his unlawful order in cases involving bail for former Tourism minister Priscah Mupfumira and MDC Alliance vice-chairperson Job Sikhala.
