The application by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s lawyer Tinomudaishe Chinyoka, who is also an applicant to the position of the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission commissioner to have the matter in which he has taken the speaker of parliament, Jacob Mudenda and Senate president, Mabel Chinomona to be heard on an urgent basis has been granted.

The application of challenging the selection process scheduled for June 21 will be heard on an urgent basis on June 13 before  Justice Benjamin Chikowero.

Chinyoka was one of Mnangagwa’s legal team that represented him during last year’s Constitutional Court challenge after the July 30 elections.

At least 38 candidates will be interviewed this month, in the National Assembly and Senate Chambers from 9am to 4.20pm and the candidates were split into two groups which will be interviewed simultaneously.

Chinyoka argues that the manner in which the interviews will be conducted is not constitutional.

I have filed this application in order to challenge the manner in which it is proposed that those interviews are to be held. It is my belief that the proposed format for the interviews is unconstitutional,” he said.

The format that the Committee on Standing Rules and Orders of the Parliament of Zimbabwe (CSRO) proposes to use for the interviews means that in being assessed for their suitability as Commissioners, each candidate will only be seen by half of the CSRO.”

“This proposed manner of proceeding is against the Constitution, namely that it is the entire CSRO that should send names of possible Commissioners to the President, not a sub-committee thereof.”

Chinyoka also argued that no criteria had been disclosed as to how particular individuals ended up on either list to be interviewed.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave itt to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside aand
    itt pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I knoww this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
