Chidyausiku To Be Now Only Constitutional Court Not Also Supreme Court Judge Same Time

One of the main issues that the suffering  Zimbabwean public have with Mugabe and his Zanu PF regime, particularly the judiciary system is that the judiciary has proved to be nothing other than Zanu PF partisan  in its execution of dutie particularly where elections are concerned, hence the continuously disputed Zanu PF ballot victories.
In typical monopoly of power, Zimbabwe’s Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku has been holding two legal portfolios, as head of judges and chairman of the Judicial Service Commission, a trend that is prevalent amongst Mugabe, Zim1 family, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats who continuously monopolise wealth and power.             
 The power hogging trend could be easily seen in Zimbabwe’s 91 year old despot president, a man in power for 35 years now who holds multiple  portfolios which at one point included, Executive President Of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Chairman Of the Southern African Development Committee SADC regional body, Chairmanship of the African Union (AU) the Continental body, Head of the Zimbabwe African Union (ZANU PF) ruling party, Commander in Chief of Zimbabwe’s Defence Forces, a mongst many more.
Interestingly, the Chief Justice,  Godfrey Chidyausiku has ceased sitting as a Supreme Court judge, which he claims is an effort to afford him the opportunity to properly manage his dual  portfolios.
The Chief Justice advanced this argument after  fellow Chief Justices questioned him during the Southern African Chief Justices’ Forum conference ,  stating that he will now sit  in the Constitutional Court , to relieve the burden of work and effectively manage his administrative duties.
The Chief Justice also mentioned , without going into further detail, that, ever  since Zimbabwe’s  18th April 1980 independence, only two judges have been removed from office. By Sibusiso Ngwenya. See more at
