Harare provincial magistrate Vakai Douglas Chikwekwe has dismissed Prosecutor-General (PG), Johannes Tomana’s application seeking to challenge his prosecution on charges of criminal abuse of office, saying there was reasonable suspicion he committed an offence.

In dismissing his application, Chikwekwe said the only person who is immune to prosecution was President Robert Mugabe.

    That’s sounds like bootlicking has just entered the bench. Strictly speaking even the Head of State is not above the Law. Practically speaking, he cannot be tried by a lower court. Likewise for Tomana, there is some anomaly for a Magistrate kumisa dzoro achitonga such a high ranking Legal Officer. As insane as having General Chiwenga being court marshalled by Col Banda veku 4.2 kwaGutu.

    For now lets have him in minus shoes,shirt and dons a khaki knee-length short.

    Tomana is not above any Magistrate. The Magistrate court have jurisdiction to preside over contept of court or criminal abuse cases, hence Tomana is properly before the Magistrates Court. If Tomana acted within the confines of the Law why is he scared to go on trial to prove his innocence.
    He should not behave as if he is being persecuted for no apparent reason like his learned lawyer Advocate Thabani Mpofu would like to label it “Police Prosecution”. Let him have his day in court.

    Let the law take it’s course , even Mugabe can be prosecuted so the magistrate if he said Mugabe is immune to prosecution he is wrong , he must interpret the constitution as it is,the sitting president is immune to prosecution not Mugabe.This shows that there is a hand behind the judiciary, the High Court will through the case away, these are the cases were we need to have an independent commission made up of retired judges within and from outside Zimbabwe so that if the PG is abusing his office we get rid of him, not these corrupt magistrate who are changing money with the rich to convict the poor and are used to settle the political scores between the politicians .
