UNCERTAINTY surrounds the legal challenge by embattled former Zanu-PF secretary for Administration Cde Didymus Mutasa who wants to challenge the outcome of Zanu-PF’s 6th National People’s Congress which he claims was a legal nullity. The application, scheduled to be filed today, and has been described as short on law and long on political allegations was drafted several weeks ago with the assistance of former Attorney General Sobusa Gula Ndebele and Mr Addington Chinake, a senior partner at Kantor and Immerman.

Both lawyers, however, did not want to associate with the application and were looking for an advocate and instructing lawyers to take it to the High Court but were snubbed by several advocates and attorneys that they approached.

Legal sources said Mr Chinake was saying they also delayed filing the application because they wanted to know what Zanu-PF would say and have amended their papers to counter the Zanu-PF position.

Zanu-PF lawyers, however, scoffed at Mr Chinake’s pronouncements saying the matters involved were in the public domain as Zanu-PF was like an open door.

”For all we know, they (Mujuru cabal) may not even file the application given that it has come out that Mutasa stole the papers that he has used to prepare the application. Which sane lawyer would approach the courts with dirty hands?”
