Another judge for Masvingo High Court

Nyashadzashe Mambure
MASVINGO – To
enable swift justice and reduce work load of the existing judges, the High
Court here will receive an additional judge.
The
deployment of Justice Sunsley Zisengwe brings to three the number of judges at the
Masvingo High Court which only had two.
The
revelations were made by Supreme Court and Constitutional Court judge Justice
Paddington Garwe when he officially opened the 2020 legal year here on Monday.
Justice
Zisengwe joins Justice Wamambo and Justice Garainesu Mawadze at the Masvingo
High Court.
The
placement of Justice Zisengwe comes after Justice Joseph Mafusire was
transferred back to Harare.
Justice
Garwe pointed out that the deployment of Justice Zisengwe to Masvingo together
with Justice Wamambo will go along in enhancing the efficiency of the High Court
and ensure that the backlog of cases will be kept under check.
“The
deployment of Justice Zisengwe brings to three the number of judges here at
Masvingo High Court.
“The
idea is to make sure that there is swift justice and the backlog is kept under
check,” said Justice Garwe.
He
said there was need to establish a permanent Labour Court in Masvingo to handle
all the labour disputes in the province
“Here
in Masvingo, I am aware that there is need to establish a permanent Labour
Court to deal with labour matters in the province. It is unfair for the
residents of this province to be made to travel to Harare or Gweru to access the
Labour Court”, said Justice Garwe.
Justice
Garwe implored lawyers to file cases with courts in their areas saying filing
of cases with courts in other areas gives a bad impression of the country’s
justice system.
He
said there are other lawyers who are based in Harare but file their cases with
the Masvingo High Court.
“Our
courts are equal. There is no favoritism. In my view, lawyers in Harare should
use the Harare High Court and not come to flood cases here. It gives a bad
impression of our justice system,” said Justice Garwe.
