Justice Luke Malaba to be added 5 more years in office. The state media recently reported that a proposal is being made to raise the retirement age for Supreme Court and Constitutional Court judges, including the Deputy Chief Justice and Chief Justice from 70 years to 75 years.

Chief Justice Luke Malaba will be added five more years in office after the Minister of Justice announced that it will be introducing an omnibus Constitutional Amendment Bill before Christmas.

Malaba has been unpopular with the opposition after the Constitutional Court judgement that pronounced President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the President of the country.

State Media also reported that Cabinet recently approved principles of the proposed constitutional amendments, which essentially give the Attorney-General’s Office leeway to begin drafting the envisaged provisions.

Government also intends to enact constitutional provisions that create the Office of the Public Protector and house the Office of the Chief Secretary to the President in the country’s supreme law.

The wisdom of creating the Public Protector’s Office, Minister Ziyambi told the state media, was to provide a remedial avenue for individuals or entities who feel aggrieved or affected by the administrative inefficiencies of the Executive and or arms of the State.

Commenting on the matter Professor Jonathan Moyo, “It beggars belief that justice minister Ziyambi thinks amending the Constitution to give Mnangagwa powers to appoint the Prosecutor General alone and to raise Chief Justice Malaba’s retirement age is a REFORM PACKAGE. Weird!”
