JUST IN: Chamisa wins Supreme Court battle against Khupe
In a video that circulating on social media Advocate Thabani Mpofu is seen explaining what the Supreme Court said regarding the appeal that Chamisa had brought before the court.
"The key issue now means Chamisa as President of the party did not lose in High Court after the court of appeal has overturned that judgement. Chamisa triumphed. What the Supreme court has said was that courts do not decide or rule in terms of political leaders but people chose own leaders" Advocate Thabani Mpofu said.
Supreme Court ruling on MDC leadership wrangle is an ex mero motu; cx proprio motu or sua sponte. The substantive matters still need determination. While proving judicial independence beyond doubt, it remains a psychological victory for the appellants.— Hon. Energy Mutodi (MP) (@energymutodi) May 20, 2019
Advocate Mpofu further explained that, "Now there are substantive issues the court must dwell on, the issue of party logo, symbol and trademarks, whether Dr. Thokozani Khupe will be allowed to use by the High Court"
