Justice Chinembiri Bhunu has ordered the arrest of lawyers representing Mr Morgan Tsvangirai after the Electoral Court dismissed the MDC-T leader’s application which sought to compel the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to release of election material used in the 2013 harmonised election.
The arrests will be for the “averments” made by the MDC-T leader against the judiciary.
Mr Tsvangirai was represented by Advocate Lewis Uriri as lead counsel and Mr Chris Mhike of Atherstone and Cook was the instructing attorney.
The MDC-T was reported to have said Zimbabwe’s judiciary was an appendage of Zanu-PF and hence his efforts to quash the victory of President Mugabe would, in his view, hit a brickwall.
