Why Mnangagwa wants Mugabe to appoint the Chief Justice

Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday said the constitution amendment bill that seeks to give the President powers to appoint the chief justice, his deputy and the president of the High Court is not a self-serving amendment but is apolitical and is centred on the notion that for the administration of justice to be smooth, it must be predicated upon an independent appointment process, insulated from potential internal influence of its senior officials.
