CJ Chidyausiku's Speech at the Opening of the 2015 Legal Year

It is that special time of the year again when we in the justice delivery system gather together to review our performance during the past year, celebrate the resolution of challenges overcome and identify those challenges that still need to be tackled in the coming year. The occasion of the official opening of the Legal Year, which we have gathered to witness today, gives me that most cherished opportunity, as head of the Judiciary and Chairperson of the Judicial Service Commission, to speak to the nation at large on matters that concern the operations of the courts.

We in the Judiciary remain cognisant of the fact that judicial authority is derived from the people of Zimbabwe, to whom we are accountable for our performance as judicial officers. We therefore also use the occasion of the official opening of the Legal Year to give a public account of our performance.
