Mnangagwa Tells Musengezi To "Withdraw" His Legitimacy Court Application

Mnangagwa Tells Musengezi To

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s lawyers want ZANU PF activist Sybeth Musengezi to withdraw his High Court application challenging the party leader’s ascendancy to power or risk his lawyers being sued.

Musengezi approached the courts in October challenging ZANU PF central committee processes that propelled Mnangagwa to the presidency of the party the ouster of the late former President Robert Mugabe in November 2017.

In a letter to Musengezi’s lawyers, Ncube Attorneys, dated November 11, Mnangagwa said Musengezi should withdraw the case or his lawyers would be sued for approaching the courts with a case “devoid of merit and brought for ulterior motives”. Said Mnangagwa’s lawyers Edwin Manikai of Dube, Manikai and Hwacha Legal Practitioners:

It is, therefore, advisable for your client to withdraw his application unconditionally at this stage, tendering wasted costs, to avoid further abuse of process and privilege and forcing the respondents to incur additional costs defending this spurious and vexatious matter.

In the event of your client not heeding this clarion call, our clients would be left with no other alternative, but to seek cost de bonis propriis (pay costs from your own pocket) against you, on the basis and grounds that your client is facing primarily legal and supremely incontrovertible contestation, proceeding further would be evidence of gross negligence, and with respect, frivolous action in the advice rendered to your client.

This proposal is open for acceptance by your client and yourselves within seven days of the date of this letter, after which it should be treated as having been withdrawn and of no force and effect, unless extended prior to the expiry. In the event, our clients would be placing a copy of this letter before the honourable court in motivation of the prayer for cost de bonis propriis.

Musengezi’s lawyer Nqobani Sithole laughed off the letter yesterday.

Its a noble cause to open that cane of worms by challenging the Crocodile's ascendancy to power since he had bn fired frm the party BT the truth of the matter is that the JUDICIARY system in Zimbabwe is CAPTURED, there will never be a fair outcome on the case.

What they did to MDC-Alliance shld be the same with Garwe's ascendancy to power. Lets them hve a taste of their own medicine. Its them that prepared the bed so they shld sleep on it.

@Mable don't address me as Cde,i don't have any relations with ZANU pf.

My point is simple straight forward,Musengezi is wasting his time in the Zimbabwean courts of Law.

Unless you @Mable got some breaking news of some positive judiciary reforms.Do not act like you are not a Zimbabwean,and please i don't have time to argue with you.Remind me of his case if he wins (Musengezi). As for me im forgeting about it right now. Thank you for your lite debate @Mable

I AM NOT VESTED MUCH IN LAW, BUT I FEEL THAT THE LETTER FROM DUBE, MANIKAI AND HWACHA LEGAL PRACTITIONERS TO NCUBE ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING CAMARADA MUSENGEZI COULD BE MISPLACED.

THEY REPRESENT THE MOST SENIOR PERSON IN THE LAND. THEIR LETTER COULD BE MISINTERPRETED TO MEAN INTIMIDATION.

DUBE, MANIKAI AND HWACHA LEGAL PRACTITIONERS SHOULD GO TO COURT AND DEFEND THEIR CLIENT. THIS CASE HAS ALREADY RAISED INQUISITIVE SPECULATIONS IN PEOPLE'S MINDS WHICH SHOULD BE ATONED BY THE COURT'S VERDICT.

PEOPLE AWAIT WITH ABATED BREATH TO HEAR THE COURT'S JUDGEMENT BECAUSE IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT AT THAT TIME OUR PRESIDENT WAS NO LONGER IN ZANU PF STRUCTURES. CAMARADA FORMER VICE PELEKEZELA MPOKO WAS THE ONLY VICE PRESIDENT IN ZANU PF AND COULD HAVE ASSUMED THE PRESIDENCY OF THE PARTY.

AS A BUSH LAWYER, I RECOMMEND THAT THIS CASE GOES TO COURT FULL LENGTH TO CLEAR THE AIR.

YOURS FAITHFULLY
