ConCourt throws out Mutasa, Mliswa case

THE Constitutional Court Wednesday unanimously ruled that an application by former Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa and his nephew Temba Mliswa challenging their expulsion from Parliament lacked merit and should be thrown out.

It took Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku and the full ConCourt bench less than ten minutes to come up with the ruling.

“The court has considered the submissions by all counsels on the matter and unanimously decided that the application is devoid of any merit and therefore should be thrown out. The costs of the matter are awarded to the respondents,” said Chidyausiku in a short ruling.

The Chief Justice said the full reasons for the judgment would be disclosed later.
