PG Hodzi Brushes Off Judge’s ‘Go Back To Law School’ Jibe

Prosecutor-General (PG) Kumbirai Hodzi has rubbished High Court judge Tawanda Chitapi’s advise for him to return to law school after messing up a bail application case involving a notorious armed robber.

Justice Chitapi on Thursday advised the Prosecutor General to go back to law school and familiarise himself with the country’s statutes.

The PG had, according to Justice Chitapi, blundered in a bail appeal in a case involving suspected notorious armed robber, Musa Taj Abdul, his accomplices Rudolph Tapiwa Kanhanga and Godfrey Mupamhanga.

Justice Chitapi said he was amazed by Hodzi’s failure to comprehend legal fundamentals when making an appeal.

He dismissed Hodzi’s appeal against the case on Thursday last week.

The case had been granted bail by High Court judge Benjamin Chikowero last December.

But addressing the media soon after he was vaccinated for coronavirus at his offices in Harare, Hodzi said:

I am still very sharp, and I don’t need to go to any law school, like what others have said.

Hodzi was controversially appointed PG following public interviews which were held by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in 2019.

He came fifth out of the 10 candidates for the top job and he failed to score 70% mark which was required in the interviews but President Emmerson Mnangagwa handpicked him for the job nonetheless.
