Mugabe Exhumation & Reburial Appeal On Ice As Coronavirus Shuts Down Courts

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has closed seven courts across the country after some magistrates, prosecutors and ancillary staff contracted the coronavirus.

In a notice on Wednesday, JSC Secretary Walter Chikwanha said the temporary closures would allow for disinfection procedures in the court buildings.

Chikwana said multiple virus cases had been reported at Chinhoyi Magistrates Court, Karoi Magistrates Court, Kariba Magistrates Court, Bindura Magistrates Court, Mt. Darwin Magistrates Court, Mutare Magistrates Court and the Mutare High Court, forcing the closure of the buildings. He added:

We are currently in the process of consulting with the Ministry of Health and Child Care on the way forward.

Litigants and lawyers who may want to file any papers at these courts are advised to get in touch with the Registrar, Resident Magistrate, Additional Sheriff or Assistant Master on duty.

The public will be advised when the concerned courts will be re-opening.
