President Mnangagwa has fired embattled High Court judge, Justice Erica Ndewere for gross incompetence following recommendations by a tribunal set up to inquire into her suitability to hold a judicial office.

Justice Ndewere was accused of gross misconduct in the performance of her duties, including failure to clear her workload in reasonable time and failure to properly study the file on a thief’s conviction and sentence when she set aside a jail term.

She denied the charges accusing Chief Justice Luke Malaba of pursuing her after she defied his unlawful orders.

A three-member tribunal led by retired judge Justice Simbi Mubako made recommendations for the judge’s removal from the esteemed bench after a fully contested tribunal hearing.

The Constitution provides that a judge may be removed from office for inability to perform the functions of his or her office, due to mental or physical incapacity, or gross incompetence, or gross misconduct.

    Justice Ndewere’s sin against the the powers that be was to grant bail to Hon Sikhala, all other issues appear to have been choreographed . May the Lord remember the unfortunate lady.

    One can only speculate on the real reason for her dismissal.

    We will fight on land , we will fight in the sea ,we will fight in the air , until final victory said the late Winston Churchill all those years ago and this still applies today in country’s like ours. A ruthless regime getting rid of their weakest links . For 40 years this obsession with a one party state has made us paupers. We pray the young ones are learning what not to do if ever they are allowed to rule one day.
