President appoints Justice Mabhikwa tribunal

President Mnangagwa has appointed a tribunal chaired by retired Justice Mafios Cheda to investigate the conduct of Justice Thompson Mabhikwa.

This comes after pressure has been mounting on the Bulawayo-based judge to step down to preserve the integrity and dignity of the bench after he was allegedly involved in an intimate affair with a staff at the High Court.

The President appointed the three-member Tribunal, which also includes Harare lawyer Ms. Philippa Philips and Mr. Chaka Mashoko in accordance with Section 187(3) of the Constitution.
