Mnangagwa Brews Another Shocker, Promotes Another Judge
29 September 2021

By A Correspondent-President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday 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.
