Legal expert Advocate Martin Dinha speaks on Saviour Kasukuwere’s sh0ck presidential bid

Advocate Martin Dinha, a legal expert, has said former ZANU PF commissar Saviour Kasukuwere’s appeal against the High Court ruling nullifying his presidential nomination has zero chance of succeeding.

Kasukuwere has been living in self-imposed exile in South Africa for over 18 months, and the court ruled he has ceased to be a registered voter as required by law.

Advocate Dinha said the High Court decision was “legally sound” and “I do not see any success on any appeal in this matter.”

He described Kasukuwere’s claim that he went to South Africa for medical attention as “naked lies” and pointed out that Kasukuwere himself has said he is in exile for safety.

Advocate Dinha said that even if Kasukuwere files an appeal, the court can enforce the ruling barring him from contesting if applied to do so.

He explained: “Elections are due in the near future, so allowing an undeserving presidential hopeful to contest and appear on the ballot paper would be prejudicial to justice, cause irreparable harm to the electorate and would not be in the public interest.”

According to Advocate Dinha, the appeal by Kasukuwere has no prospects of succeeding because the High Court decision was “unassailable and watertight, based on facts and a clear interpretation of the law.”
