Bhasikiti, through ConCourt, bars Mugabe from declaring Mwenezi East Costituency vacant.

THE Constitutional Court, is of late passing judgements that can be viewed as democratic, with the latest, being a full people’s victory against oppressive authority.Zimbabweans have for a long time been confronted by a solid wall when in need of challenging the President’s dictatorial tendencies but now the tide seems to be turning fully in favour of the people.

Recently, MP Kudakwashe Bhasikiti , the former Masvingo provincial state minister was expelled from Zanu PF purged in a ruthless purge, that saw many Zanu PF stalwarts fall from grace. He however proceeded to the Concourt, and filed an urgent chamber application seeking bar Mugabe from declaring Mwenezi constituency vacant and his gamble , effectively paid off well, as On Thursday, Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court barred President Robert Mugabe from declaring , MP Kudakwashe Bhasikiti’s former constituency, Mwenezi vacant. Bhasikiti was represented by the MDC-Renewal Team’s Tendai Biti, who was also the Government of National Unity Finance Minister from 2008 to 2013, thus a man keen to fight tooth and nail against Mugabe at any level in defence of democracy.

Kudakwashe Bhasikiti’s case rests on the argument that Mugabe cannot declare the Mwenezi vacant, an call for a by election, until the High Court has completed his expulsion case. The full Constitutional Court bench was in agreement with Kudakwashe Bhasikiti’s argument and Robert Mugabe should barred from doing so. by Sibusiso Ngwenya
