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.
The postponement of the application came after the Prosecutor-General’s lawyer, Thembinkosi Magwaliba, raised a preliminary point arguing Moyo’s court documents had not been numbered, thereby, making it difficult for his client to follow.
