Mugabe Hauled To Con-court ‘ December 22,- Not A National Holiday, But Zanu PF/ Zapu Party Unity Day’

MDC-T Chitungwiza MP Alexio Musundire and civic activists Tinomudaishe Chinyoka and Coliwe Mufaki have taken President Robert Mugabe to the Constitutional Court challenging the constitutionality of declaring December 22 a national holiday.

The three, who filed their papers last Friday, argue that December 22 was not a national holiday, but a commemoration of a unity between two political parties Zanu and-PF-Zapu.

The day was set aside to celebrate the signing of the 1987 Unity Accord between President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu and the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo’s-PF Zapu.

In his founding affidavit, Musundire said December 22 was not a date for celebration, but one for “mourning one of the victims of Zanu-PF hegemony”.
