    Registered Legal practitioners of Masvingo province left their offices, tight schedules for the Civic Centre open space, Saturday to avail to the public.
    Vice president of the law society, Chaka Mashoko led the practitioners, Saratoga, Makausi chambers, Mupindu legal practitioners among others in a bid to impart knowledge and demystify myths associated with the practice.
    'We operate in society and the public are our biggest stakeholders. This open day is a way to give back to the society by giving free legal advice and knowledge of the law and constitution. The myth that we are an untouchable lot has led people to shun away from legal advice so we have come to demystify the myths for the benefit of all,' he said 
    The Judicial services under the notion justice for free participated as a drive to bring courts to the public as they play an important part in the justice delivery system.
    'Judicial services are not the only players in the courts but we are blamed. Everyone plays an important part for justice to be served and justice is for free. We bring not just knowledge to the people but the courts,' said deputy registrar
    Advocate Tongai Mutindi believes in the proactive part of the society in the law so as to stop the blame game.
    'The constitution should be like a bible taught to all Zimbabweans so as to avoid being trampled upon with sections that are not even in the constitution. Children should be taught about the constitution like what happened with the national pledge. Take the law to the grassroots and this open day would have a great turn out,' he said
    The law society also holds the Annual president's fundraising dinner to raise funds for less privileged law students as they believe in education.
    Mayor of Masvingo, Councilor Herbert Pfidze also attended this second edition of the law society open day.
