Victory For Bhasikiti As Concourt Stops Mugabe From Declaring Mwenezi East Seat Vacant

THE Constitutional Court Thursday barred President Robert Mugabe from declaring Mwenezi East constituency vacant following the expulsion of MP Kudakwashe Bhasikiti from Zanu PF.

The full Constitutional Court bench agreed with Bhasikiti that Mugabe should be stopped from declaring the seat vacant until the High Court finalizes his expulsion case.

Represented by MDC-Renewal Team’s Tendai Biti, the former Masvingo provincial state minister recently filed an urgent chamber application seeking to bar Mugabe from calling for by-election in his constituency.
