President Mnangagwa Fires Justice Edith Mushore

President Mnangagwa Fires Justice Edith Mushore

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has removed Justice Edith Mushore from the office of a judge in terms of Section 187 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe.

This comes after the tribunal established to look into her unexplained absence from work handed its recommendations to President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The Tribunal recommended that Mushore should be removed from the Office of a judge for acts of gross misconduct.

This was announced by the Acting Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Martin Rushwaya in a statement issued on Saturday, 10 September. Said Rushwaya:

The Tribunal which was inquiring into the question of removal from office of Honourable Justice Edith Mushore, in terms of Section 187 (3) of the Constitution, has completed its work.

The Tribunal has reported its findings to His Excellency, The President, Cde Dr E.D Mnangagwa, and has recommended that Hon. Justice Edith Mushore be removed from the Office of a judge for acts of gross misconduct.

Accordingly, His Excellency The President, acting in terms of Section 187 (8) of the Constitution, has removed Hon. Justice Edith Mushore from the Office of Judge of the High Court.

Mnangagwa appointed a tribunal to investigate Justice Mushore’s suitability for office after she last reported for duty on 14 June 2021 without giving reasons for her absence.

Judges are not allowed to be absent from work for more than three days without official leave.

In May 2021, Mushore was one of the judges who ruled that Chief Justice Luke Malaba had ceased to lead the bench upon reaching the age of mandatory retirement.

However, Malaba appealed the ruling and won, and he remains the Chief Justice to date.

Could it be the Hon Justice Mushore elected to jump off the Lucre Bandwagon because she's one of the few still left with a set of morals?
Is it fear of the obvious that scrared from formal resignation?
Where could she be? Canada, Australia or Houston Texas away from the madding crowd?
I wonder...

With the issue so clear, was a tribunal required for her or, instead, for what or who her conscience was against?

Two other two judges who ruled that Chief Justice Like Malaba had ceased to be the Chief Justice are still on the job. Ex judge Edith Mushore chickened out and decided to leave the bench and follow other avenues.

I suspect that the former judge is no longer in ZImbabwe. She should be already out of this country and working too. I wish her well in her new endeavors.

To suggest that Justice Mushore chickened out is to do her injustice. I personally look at her action as consistent with matters of principle. She stood for what was right at law, and to see that sacrificed at the altar of political convenience and politicization of the judiciary and taking that lying down is too much.

She, in absconding was embarking on a very loud silent protest, for which I roundly applaud her. To stand for principle is a noble calling

It's time for you to get a better job. But you need to leave this country urgently if you can's time to cross over seas. These crocodiles will feast on you soon before 2023

There are people that talk
There are people that walk
Very few walk the talk
Edith Mushore was man enough to walk the talk
Unlike EDith who can't walk the talk

I salute Justice Edith Mushore
Who was man enough to "Salute the King"* at King ED

* in colloquial English to "Salute the King" is to fart (F.A.R.T.) or pass wind.
