Jonathan Moyo to Pay

Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo was yesterday slapped with costs after his application challenging the constitutionality of his arrest by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) was postponed indefinitely for failing to comply with the Supreme Court rules.

Through his lawyers, Moyo failed to properly paginate and bind his court documents in strict violation of rule 43 of the Supreme Court. This prompted the full Constitutional Court (ConCourt) bench to censure Moyo’s legal practitioners and decline to entertain the matter.

Sanctions Lifted Against Zimbabwe

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has lifted sanctions against Zimbabwe after the southern African country settled its arrears, a report said on Tuesday.

According to New Zimbabwe, the IMF confirmed on Monday that it had removed the remedial measures against the country.

The IMF, however, maintained that the move did not mean that it would consider new requests for funding from President Robert Mugabe's administration.

Support Emergency Relief Efforts for Zimbabwe

The humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe is deteriorating on a daily basis. The cholera outbreak of the past week, as well as chronic food, water and electricity shortages, highlights the challenges facing the people of Zimbabwe. In addition, the collapse of the Zimbabwean currency, spiralling inflation and the gradual disintegration of the security forces are all indications of a situation that is getting more desperate by the day.

Extensive emergency relief efforts will be required over the next few weeks to help stabilise the situation in Zimbabwe.
