Lawyer Musa Kika files for execution of Luke Malaba’s judgement

Lawyer Musa Kika files for execution of Luke Malaba’s judgement. Dr Musa Kika, Executive Director of the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum, has filed an urgent court application seeking an order for leave to execute the High Court judgment barring former Chief Justice, Luke Makaba, from exercising duties as the Chief Justice of Zimbabwe.

The urgent court application follows a judgment delivered by Justices Tsanga and Chirawu-Mugomba who ruled that Luke Malaba was not in contempt of court because the President and Minister of Justice had lodged an appeal with the Supreme Court.

The latest court application seeks an order that pending finalisation of the appeal, the former CJ should immediately cease and desist from exercising the functions of the Chief Justice of Zimbabwe either in a judicial or administrative capacity unless allowed to do so pursuant to the outcome of the appeal.
