All set for historic ConCourt election petition

...

By Staff Reporter

The constitutional court will today hear the petition lodged by MDC-Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa in his bid to overturn President Mnangagwa’s victory in the July 30 harmonised elections.

In the process, the court will ink its own piece of history, as it broadcasts the proceedings live from Mashonganyika Building on the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) television which has been granted the rights.

It will also be historical in that the court will be handling such a petition for the second time after it was called to intervene in 2013 when the late MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai challenged former president Mr Robert Mugabe’s win.

Nine Judges of the apex court led by Chief Justice Luke Malaba will hear the petition.

The proceedings are expected to start at 10am this morning.
