Court Sets Date For Mnangagwa Legitimacy Case

Court Sets Date For Mnangagwa Legitimacy Case

The High Court has set 21 September 2022 as the for hearing the case in which Sybeth Musengezi is challenging President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rise to power in 2017.

Musengezi argues that Mnangagwa unlawfully attained the presidency of the ruling ZANU PF, therefore, is illegitimate. 

In an update on another case in which he sought to stop the ZANU PF congress set for October this year, Musengezi said:

Thanks to this urgent chamber application that sought (to) stop the ZANU PF congress pending finalization of the legitimacy matter. Now our Mnangagwa legitimacy matter is set down for the 21st of September for hearing before HC Judge President Justice Mary Dube. We pray for justice!

In the latest case, Musengezi is seeking an order prohibiting Mnangagwa, Obert Mpofu and Patrick Chinamasa from convening and or holding the ZANU PF’s elective conference, also known as the National People’s Congress.

He also wants the court to bar them from making a public announcement in respect of the date of convening the congress saying they are in their offices unlawfully.

Mnangagwa’s legitimacy Case:

Mnangagwa became the president of the ruling ZANU PF in November 2017 when then president Robert Mugabe “resigned” in a move described by some as a coup.

Mugabe had expelled Mnangagwa who was his deputy citing insubordination.

Critics say Phelekezela Mphoko, who was also a Vice President, should have taken over as the president of both the party and government.

Some observers say Musengezi is being sent by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga who is said to be harbouring ambitions to dislodge his boss from power.

If Mnangagwa is declared illegitimate, he cannot convene the ZANU PF congress and cannot get a new mandate from the party.

This is happening as Zimbabwe is heading toward the 2023 elections.

With the compromised judiciary in Zimbabwe when ever judges sit on the bench they first think about loosing out on proceeds from corruption if they go against Zanu-Pf.

Chamisa is legit as he is president of a new party which is very much divorced from the MDCs.

Chamisa also was illegitimate. Khupe was supposed to be president but they cast her out because she is a Ndebele and Ndebeles are undermined. Thats why he doesn't want structure or constitution.

There's no perfect system in the world but Chamisa will take corruption to the next level. If you can't account for $2 then what will happen if you get the national coffers?

I praise Sybeth Musengezi for fighting a losing battle from the beginning.

It is a foregone conclusion that the captured courts shall judge in favour of His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa.

It is clear that there is a ghost behind Syberth Musengezi . In this case the President's handlers have realised that Sybeth Musengezi means business and have asked judiciary to expedite this case.

[ ZVIRO KWAZVO APA PAKABIWA HUKURU APA ].

Sybeth can win this case, I like his confidance and it is shaking Mnangagwa from within. Do not underestimate Sybeth, he's fully backed up baba, is a rising hero.

I look forward to thelawsuit , as a paralegal
am interested in the 🧣🐊defence.
from the git go they have been magnifying technicalities as a weapon of defence.
we are now where we are cuz it was fruitless.
so the matter still has gravitas
is his ascension to power constitutional?
the constitution is clear on the process of ascension.
reminder
mpokho was acting president during the putsch.
the defendent had been dismissed by the president.
the ruling party did not contest the procedural dismissal
khaya Moyo delivered the letter of dismissal
the party executive did not constitute a quorum when they reappointed the defendent
failure to constitute a quorum disqualifies all resolutions undertaken as null and void.
I rest my case , your Honour
