By A Correspondent- President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promoted chief magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi to the High Court bench.
Mutevedzi was appointed together with Rogers Manyangadze Foroma, Chipo Annie-Lucy Mungwari, Elijah Makomo, Never Katiyo, Joseph Chilimbe, Bongani Ndlovu, Samuel Deme and Catherine Kate Bachi-Muzawazi.
The appointments come soon after the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) made recommendations to the President following public interviews held last month.
The JSC submits a list of recommended candidates to Mnangagwa, who assents or asks the JSC to submit a fresh set of names if he is not satisfied. The vacancies arose after some judges were fired, retired, or promoted to the apex court.
