MDC T NAME : CHAMISA GOES TO SUPREME COURT

MDC-T leader, Nelson Chamisa has gone to the Supreme Court to appeal against the judgement of Justice Francis Bere.

Bere ruled that no-one was entitled to lay claim of the political party’ s name and symbol without the question being resolved by a competent court.
Chamisa has hired Harare lawyer Advocate Thabani Mpofu to lodge the appeal.
Chamisa argues that High Court judge Justice Francis Bere erred in making pronouncements on substantive issues not placed before it and which the parties had no opportunity to advance arguments on.
He further says that the High Court misdirected itself seriously by finding the matter not urgent which misdirection led to failure by the court to consider the applicable principle of time and consequence.
Chamisa seeks the appeal to succeed with costs, an order setting aside the order of the High Court and that the order be heard on merits before a different judge at Bulawayo High Court
