Today, the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) and President Emmerson Mnangagwa have again shown their true colours. They don’t want a just system or rule of law. They just want comrades and their junta to have total control in Harare.
Why do I say that?
Well, a judge or Justice Erica Ndewere have been sacked for “gross incompetence”. That’s happening because she ordered an opposition leader out of jail on bail. That being Job Sikhala who has defied the state for so long.
She is forced and sacked for doing her duty and following the codes of law. Not just being a loyal stooge and a tool for oppression. The ZANU-PF wants judges who unfairly uses the legal system to thwart freedom, liberty and justice for dissidents. That’s why a Tribunal set in place advised for this to happen and the President easily complied.
The ruling regime and the President is saying to the grand public. That the rule of law and the codes of law doesn’t really matter. What does is the loyalty and working directly for the state. Nobody should go against the state or make an order, which isn’t accepted by the high ranking officials. The Politburo and others have the final say. A judge should just comply and execute it. They shouldn’t work as an independent branch and work accordingly to the laws. No, they are supposed to find the laws and find measures to keep people behind bars.
That is the gist of this. ZANU-PF and Mnangagwa has shown this today and it’s disgraceful. Peace.
