ZIMBABWE’s Chief Justice, Luke Malaba says the country’s judiciary system remains independent of any outside influence.
The Chief Justice dismissed the notion that the executive arm of Government has an overbearing influence on the operations of the judiciary.
“I can say now, once and for all that there is no one, even the President, who has ever interfered with the judiciary. There is no interference with the judiciary,” he said.
Chief Justice Malaba was speaking in Bulawayo on Thursday after touring newly refurbished court facilities at Tredgold Building and Western Commonage magistrates’ court.
The country’s judiciary has been criticised by some people who have questioned its independence from other arms of Government, particularly the executive.
