Nelson Chamisa not legitimate MDC leader, court rules

Published

on

A Zimbabwe judge has overturned the appointment of the main opposition MDC party’s leader Nelson Chamisa rendering invalid all decisions he has made in the role, state media said on Wednesday.

High Court judge Edith Mushore ruled against Chamisa’s appointment as one of the party’s vice presidents three years ago, upholding a legal challenge lodged by a rival party member.

“All the decisions made under (the) Nelson Chamisa administration are null and void. He cannot preside over party matters,” the state-run Herald newspaper said in its court report.

The MDC, which has been plagued by infighting, dismissed the ruling and accused President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU-PF party of being behind it.

“We fundamentally disagree with the judgement. The choice of leaders of any political party, the world over, is the sole preserve of the members of that party,” it said in a statement.

“We are fully aware of the machinations and strategies being deployed by the Mnangagwa administration to destabilise and destroy (the party).”

Veteran MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai appointed Nelson Chamisa and Engineer Elias Mudzuri as party co-vice presidents before Tsvangirai’s death last year.

Chamisa then took over as party leader and was the MDC candidate in presidential elections last year, which were won by Mnangagwa.

Chamisa insists that fraud denied him victory in the election, which came after Robert Mugabe’s ousting in 2017.

Judge won’t return $100,000 to the woman who posted bond for R. Kelly

Published

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge in R. Kelly’s Illinois sexual assault case has refused to give $100,000 in bail money back to a Kelly friend who paid it in February to secure the singer’s release from county jail.

The judge says papers that restauranteur Valencia Love signed clearly indicated she could lose the money.

Love’s lawyer said in court Tuesday that she didn’t know when she paid 10% of a $1 million bond that Kelly would be charged federally and land in federal jail.

John Collins said Love now fears losing all the money as charges against Kelly stack up.

But Judge Lawrence Flood read sections of papers Love signed warning the bond money could be used for Kelly’s legal fees and that she may never see it again.
