The Constitutional Court today threw out the case in which former Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa and his nephew Temba Mliswa were challenging their expulsion from Parliament. The court said the case had no merit. “The court has considered the submissions by all counsels on the matter and unanimously decided that the application is devoid of any merit and therefore should be thrown out. The costs of the matter are awarded to the respondents,” Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku was quoted as saying. The Court will on 14 April preside over a similar case in which 21 former legislators of the Movement for Democratic Change are also challenging their expulsion from Parliament. By-elections for the 16 seats- two vacated by ZANU-PF candidates and 14 by MDC- will be held on 10 June.
