“His Excellency, the President has accordingly, in terms of section 187 (8) of the Constitution, removed Honourable Justice Erica Ndewere from office with immediate effect,” read a statement issued by chief secretary to the president and cabinet, Micheck Sibanda.

Ndewere was suspended in November last year by Mnangagwa, who later appointed a three-member Tribunal to investigate her for alleged misconduct following a recommendation by the Judicial Service Commission.

“The Tribunal has presented its findings to His Excellency, President of the Republic of Zimbabwe in terms of section 187 (7) of the Constitution. The tribunal has recommended that Honourable Justice Ndewere be removed from office for gross incompetence,” Sibanda said.
