The Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum has approached the courts over Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi’s Contempt of Court. In a letter to the Registrar of the High Court, Musa Kika‘s lawyers said:
RE: CITATION FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT FOR MINISTER re Case HC 2128/21
On the 1Sth of May 2021 the High Court issued an abridged judgment in a matter involving our client Musa Kika versus the Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs and 18 other respondents (Case No. HC 2128/21)
In response to the judgment, the Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs issued the statement attached hereto.
We believe that the statement scandalises the court and that accordingly, Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi is in contempt of court.
We request that you place this letter before the Judge President as well as the honourable judges who heard the matter.
Our client asserts his right to be heard in the proceedings to be commenced by the Citation for Contempt of Court.
We draw your attention to the judgment in In re: Chinamasa 2000 (2) ZLR 322 (SC) which deals with the procedure that must be followed in a matter of this nature.
We thank you in advance. Yours faithfully
