Guvamombe appointed chief magistrate


The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has appointed Mishrod Guvamombe as substantive chief magistrate after acting in that capacity since the elevation of Hlekani Mwayera to the High Court bench nine months ago.

According to a circular dated July 25, signed by provincial magistrate Walter Chikwanha, Guvamombe’s appointment is with immediate effect.

The circular was sent to all senior regional magistrates, Eastern, Western and Central divisions and all provincial heads.

Part of the circular reads: “Please be advised that the JSC has appointed Mr Mishrod Guvamombe as the substantive Chief Magistrate of Zimbabwe. As usual, we are all expected to give him maximum support.”
JSC deputy secretary Rex Shana confirmed the appointment.

“It is true he has been appointed into that office after being in the acting capacity for nine months, I am sure his results speak for themselves,” Shana said.

Prior to his appointment as acting chief magistrate, Guvamombe was the provincial magistrate in charge of Harare Province, a position currently held by Munamato Mutevedzi.
