GRACE DRAGS CHIEF TO COURT

Grace Mugabe has appealed against a chief’s ruling that she violated traditional norms by laying to rest former President Robert Mugabe in Zvimba.

VOA repprts that Mrs. Mugabe’s attorney, Fungai Chimwamurombe, has asked Chinhoyi courts to make a judicial review of Chief Zvimba’s ruling, compelling her to exhume her husband’s remains and rebury them at the National
Heroes Acre in Harare.

The basis of the appeal, as cited by Chimwamurombe, is that there was "absence of jurisdiction, impropriety of relief granted, irregular service of summons and the judgement was biased.”

The chief fined Mrs. Mugabe five cattle and a goat. The Mugabe family rejected the village court order with the late president’s nephew, Leo Mugabe, saying they will fight the case to the bitter end.
