Musukuma denied indaba registration


DANNY Musukuma, the Harare man who this week filed an urgent High Court application to stop the Second All-Stakeholders Conference,
reportedly attempted to register for the event yesterday as a Zanu PF delegate, but was turned away.

Copac co-chairperson Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana (Zanu PF) confirmed the development, saying those trying to scuttle the conference and pretending to be Zanu PF were not members of the party as they were working against the wishes of President Robert Mugabe.

“He came for accreditation. He had been forwarded by the Harare province of my party so he felt that since he is suing Copac and fighting against the conference he can have his cake and eat it. I advised him to seek an order from the High Court because Copac could not accredit him to the same process he is fighting,” Mangwana said.

Mangwana added Musukuma’s attempt to be accredited for the conference had taken Copac by surprise.

“The only logical thing was to stop and let him have his day in court. His court case is ill-conceived, mischievous and without merit,” he said.

“If every Tom, Dick and Harry is allowed to sue Copac, we are allowing Copac to have 13 million suits. We as managers of the process will not be disturbed by such mischief to distract us and we have assigned our lawyers (Dzimba, Jaravaza and Partners) to look into the matter as we move to the conference.”

Musukuma on Wednesday approached the High Court seeking an interdict barring the holding of the conference demanding the release of the National Statistical Report.

He made an urgent chamber application, arguing Copac negotiators could not introduce the report at the conference and have it considered without having been made public first.
