Im interested in child support. When deductions from the father 's payslip are done. Which is which? I have been in civil court in less than a month the first time maintance was deducted from my basic salary as the Hon explained that allowance and overtime can be stopped any time. Yesterday I was draged to a different Magistrate who deducted maintance from net salary, overtime and allowance included. I tried to reason with the Hon that overtime was scrapped off but it didn't help my case. Now my basic salary is $13583 and maintenance is claiming $12058.
How can I survive?

Security forces in Zimbabwe are continuing to use torture and deadly force against people protesting against government restrictions and fuel hikes that have made petrol in that country the highest-priced in the world. Alarming pictures of security forces beating protesters shown round the world forced President Emmerson Mnangagwa, on an international visit to drum up foreign investment, to return before his original date, and take control of the situation. But little has changed since he arrived home earlier this week and the violent crackdown is continuing. In a rare move, the Law Society of Zimbabwe has met with the Chief Justice, Luke Malaba, to raise concerns about the way that judicial officers are handling cases relating to the crackdown. They told him it appeared the courts were biased and that justice was not being meted out. #FreeLawAfrica Zimbabwe Legal Information Institute #Jifanews
A provincial magistrate has come under fire from two judges of the high court in Zimbabwe for “conducting himself as a loose cannon” and for not telling the truth to an accused about what the judges had ordered in their review of the original trial court sentence. The magistrate first imposed a hopelessly lenient sentence on a bus driver whose negligence directly caused the death of six people and then misrepresented to the accused the high court’s order on review. The judges said the magistrate’s behaviour was “mind boggling”, that he had been “untruthful”, had “taken leave of his senses” and “embarked on a frolic of his own”. They also ordered that their judgment be brought to the attention of the chief magistrate who was to ensure that the conduct of the magistrate concerned “is not repeated”.

On RG Mugabe's exhumation and reburial

Genesis 50 v 5 ‘My father made me swear, saying, “I am about to die: in my tomb that I hewed out for myself in the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me.” Now therefore, let me please go up and bury my father. Then I shall return - Christian Bible, Book of Genesis.

In Mugabe N.O and 2 Others v Manongovere (309 of 2022) [2022] ZWHHC 309 (12 May 2022); BONA MUTSAHUNI-MUGABE N.O. and TINOTENDA ROBERT MUGABE and BELLARMINE CHATUNGA MUGABE contend with the default ruling in the case before Chinhoyi Magistrates Court, relating to the exhumation and reburial of their father, the late former Head of State, R G Mugabe.

An excerpt reads as follows:
"The Appellants were aggrieved with the decision of Chief Zvimba and approached the Chinhoyi Magistrates Court on appeal in terms of section 24 (1) of the Customary Law and Local Courts Act [Chapter 7:05] (the Act) as read with Rule 4 of the Supreme court (Miscellaneous Appeals and References) Rules, 1975. They averred that they are competent litigants to institute the appeal based on their real and direct interest in the orders of Chief Zvimba which affect their personal property and fiduciary functions at law respectively. They pointed out that the first Appellant is the duly appointed executrix to the Estate of the deceased and the second and third Appellants are sons to the said deceased." TSANGA J AND MAXWELL J

Perfecta Contracts and Zimbabwe's Legislative context

In Lonrho Logistics (Private) Limited v Ram Petroleum (Private) Limited (50 of 2022) [2022] ZWSC 50 (12 May 2022); Uchena JA, Mathonsi JA and Kudya JA consider the following:

" On 2 November 2018 the appellant paid the purchase price of $201 000 in terms of the invoice presented to it by the respondent but did not take delivery of the diesel in question. In fact, it was not until 28 November 2018 that the respondent delivered only 30 000 litres of the diesel on the instructions of the appellant. This left a balance of 120 000 litres of diesel which is the subject of the present litigation. Problems started in January 2019 when three events occurred in quick succession. First, the Minister of Finance and Economic Development gazetted the Customs and Excise (Tariff) (Amendment) Notice, (No. 7, 2019) as S.I 9 of 2019. The Statutory Instrument came into operation on 13 January 2019. It was enacted to amend Part II of the Second Schedule of the Customs and Excise (Tariff) Notice, 2017 which was published in Statutory Instrument 53 of 2017.

Second, and subsequently to that, the Petroleum (Petroleum Products Pricing) Regulations S.I 10 of 2019 were gazetted. Section 3 thereof made it clear that they applied to “petroleum products prices in relation to wholesaling and retailing activities.” Section 5 provided the formulas that were to be applied by the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (“ZERA”) in calculating the price of any Petroleum product. It is significant to note that the amount of duty imposed by S.I 10 of 2019 appears to have been equivalent to the amount fixed by S.I 9 of 2019, which, as I have stated, specifically stated that it came into operation on 13 January 2019 without in any way suggesting that it had retrospective effect."

The complex interplay between RBZ Foreign Exchange Directives and the Law of Contract

In Legacy Hospitality Management Services Limited v African Sun Limited and Another (43 of 2022) [2022] ZWSC 43 (29 March 2022); Makoni JA, Mathonsi JA and Mwayera JA presided on a case with the background in the excerpt below :

"...Subsequently, about three years later, on or about 13 September 2018, the first respondent purported to terminate the agreement between the parties on the basis that the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ), as the Exchange Control Authority, had refused to accommodate the first respondent’s continued position of incurring the obligation to pay fees in foreign currency to the appellant in terms of the agreement. In addition to the RBZ’s refusal to countenance the obligation for payment of fees by the first respondent. The first respondent also sought to terminate the agreement on the basis that the appellant had refused to renegotiate the terms and rates of payment in order to bring the parties agreement in conformity with the RBZ’s Exchange Control Regulations.

The first respondent indicated that it was unable to pay outside the RBZ’s directives, as it deemed that this would be illegal. Further, the first respondent averred that the fact that the RBZ refused to countenance the continued accrual of the foreign currency obligation, made the fulfilment of its contractual obligation permanently impossible to perform. The respondent averred that the impossibility to perform was through no fault of either party, but that a supervening impossibility barred the parties from performing the terms of the agreement..."

In Rutsate v Wedzerai and 7 Others (45 of 2022) [2022] ZWSC 45 (29 March 2022), a dispute arose regarding legitimacy of a certain chieftancy appointment.

Was the jurisdiction of the High Court to hear this matter ousted by s 283 of the New Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No. 20) Act, 2013 (‘the Constitution’), which had the new provision that provides that any dispute concerning chieftainship is now dealt with by the President?

Guvava JA, Bhunu JA and Kudya J order as follows:


The court a quo correctly found that it had the requisite jurisdiction to hear the matter. Section 283 (c) of the Constitution has vested the power to deal with disputes relating to chieftainship in the President as a domestic resolution mechanism. It is not a substantive provision as it requires operationalization through an Act of Parliament. The provision does not have retrospective application. It does not oust the inherent power of the High Court to determine such matters. The matter commenced before the court a quo prior to the coming into force of the Constitution in 2013. It was therefore pending when the Constitution was promulgated. That being the case, it must proceed in terms of para 18(9) of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution."
