MASVINGO -The High Court in Masvingo, like all others closed for the first term on Friday last week and will only be attending to urgent chamber applications and bail hearings.
The High Court, Supreme and Constitutional courts will commence their second judicial term on May 9, 2023 according to dates gazetted by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in General Notice 1938 of 2022
The second judicial term will end on July 28, 2023 with the third term running from September 11 to December 1, 2023. The 2024 legal year will began on January 8.
The shortage of a third judge at the station saw some appeals being transferred to other stations including the High Court in Harare.
The JSC has said it is working on bringing a third judge to Masvingo. The Station has two judges only, Justice Garainesu Mawadze and Justice Sunsley Zisengwe.
