COURT WATCH 14/2021
[23rd July 2021]
POSTPONEMENT OF PUBLIC INTERVIEWS
of Candidates Nominated for High Court Judgeships
The Judicial Service Commission [JSC] has announced the postponement until further notice of the public interviews that were scheduled to take place from Monday to Wednesday next week. New dates for the interviews will be advertised in due course.
The JSC states that the postponement was decided on “in view of the continuing upsurge in COVID-19 infections and the Government’s call for all institutions to further restrict operations” and expresses the Commission’s apologies to everyone concerned for any inconvenience that may have been caused by the decision to defer the interviews. “The decision was taken in the interest of the health of everyone directly involved in the process particularly and all Zimbabweans generally.”
The JSC will in due course notify members of the public of the new dates of the interviews in compliance with the requirements of section 180(2)(c) of the Constitution.
