Zanu PF warns against Judiciary interference
Cde Simon Khaya Moyo

Zanu PF says no one is above the law and the Constitution should be respected by all citizens, regardless of their political affiliation or station in life.

In a statement yesterday, Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo said governance in Zimbabwe was premised on the rule of the law.

The statement comes after Amnesty International attempted to interfere with the country’s judiciary system by demanding the immediate release of MDC-A vice chairman Job Sikhala, party spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere, and political activist, Hopewell Chin’ono, who were arrested for spreading false information.

“This implies the separation of powers as evidenced by the existence of the Executive, the Judiciary and the Legislature. Zimbabwe is indeed a constitutional democracy and not a banana republic.

“To expect His Excellency, the President Cde ED Mnangagwa to intefere with law enforcement agencies and the judiciary is absurdity in the extreme. The same organisation will cry foul if such illegality was to be implemented,” said Ambassador Khaya Moyo.

He said the revolutionary party took great exception to the demands by Amnesty International and its acolytes for President Mnangagwa to order the release Hopewell Chin’ono, Fadzayi Mahere and Job Sikhala from lawful custody.

“All citizens who are suspected to have committed crime in Zimbabwe are subjected to due processes of the law irrespective of one’s political affiliation and station in life.

“No one is above the law and the Constitution should be respected by all citizens,” he said.

    Judicial interference by the State goes back to the very beginning of Zimbabwe.

    Since when has the executive not been interfering with the Judiciary. Did the president not say that he would ensure that Hon Biti would not be punished when he was deported by the Zambian government. Did he not say he would ensure that the Courts would not punish Hon Biti. If that was not an indication of interference then I don’t know what it is. Food for thought.

    These other guys have no right to try and interfere with the law warns ZANU PF’s Simon Khaya Moyo through their mouthpiece The Herald.
    But everyone already knows that it’s only ZANU PF that’s allowed to interfere with the law.
    And if you dare try such nonsense you will disappear in the night and if you are very lucky you might be seen again… but a sad shadow of your former self.
    What a mad world we have in Zimbabwe.
