Zimbabwean Fighting for Mnangagwa's Ouster Says Key Documents Missing in Harare High Court

Sybeth Musengezi

Sybeth Musengezi, who filed a court application seeking the removal of President Emmerson Mnangagwa from the post of Zanu PF leader, says there are some documents that have gone missing at the High Court in Harare.

Musengezi says some court officials have informed him that the court case is a “security sensitive” matter and therefore he can’t access certain documents. He says the documents are, infact, no longer available.

Some of the documents, says Musengezi, include those submitted by Goodson Nguni, who wants the court to stop the matter from being heard in court.

His attorney, Nqobani Sithole, says it’s puzzling that some court documents are missing at the High Court in Harare.

Mnangagwa’s lawyers have been pressing Musengezi to drop the High Court case with some Zanu PF activists promising to take unspecified action on him.

Mnangagwa became the Zanu PF secretary in 2017 when the Zimbabwe Defence Force, ruling party supporters and others toppled then President Robert Mugabe, claiming that he was surrounded by thieves.

Musengezi claims that Mnangagwa got the post of Zanu PF first secretary without following proper procedures and therefore his elevation to that position was unconstitutional.
