AIWA! NO!//Zimbabwe’s opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party has reportedly said that it is planning to “inaugurate” its leader Nelson Chamisa as the legitimately elected president of Zimbabwe, following the disputed July 30 elections.
According to New Zimbabwe.com, Chamisa confirmed the development when he addressed his supporters in Chitungwiza over the weekend.
The “inauguration” was scheduled to take place during his party’s upcoming 19th anniversary celebrations.
“Next week, the MDC family will celebrate its 19th Anniversary. As a party, we sat down and discussed the issue on election theft. We want to conclude this matter,” Chamisa was quoted as saying.
He’s (minister Ziyambi) under the misconception that an exemption certificate is granted to a lawyer who’s resident in a reciprocating country. It’s the opposite! Since he says South Africa is not a reciprocating country, this is where the exemption certificate ought to be used!
The Minister is also using the wrong version of the Legal Practitioners Act. That’s why he refers to “subparagraph (iii) of paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of section five” which was removed in 2004 by the Law Reviser because it was an error. The Justice Minister didn’t know!
bY RAY NDLOVU; TIMES LIVE//In two days’ time‚ Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court will sit to hear a challenge against the presidential election results brought nearly a fortnight ago by MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa‚ the 40-year-old challenger that stood against President Emmerson Mnangagwa‚ the 75-year-old incumbent‚ in the July 30 election.
It is the last stop in the long-drawn-out political contest that has put the nation on edge in the country’s first election without long-time former ruler Robert Mugabe.
Thabani Moyo, an attorney of the MDC Alliance, says he is ready to file a petition in the Constitutional Court in an effort to nullify presidential election results favoring incumbent president Emmerson Mnangagwa who got 50.8% of the votes cast compared to Nelson Chamisa’s 44.3%.
