    Masvingo Civil Court handed over to High Court

    Sydney Mubaiwa

    MASVINGO – Masvingo Civil Court has moved from its building along Mugabe way to the Criminal Courts Building along Mutare Road to pave way for the High Court which will start operating from Masvingo soon.
    The handover of the Civil Court buildings was sealed at a small event in Masvingo last week.
    All property and staff have already been moved from the civil court to the criminal court. Renovations have started following a visit by Ellias Muzenda, an administration manager with the Judicial Service Commission and officials from the department of public works.
    This development follows a visit by a high powered delegation led by Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku in November last year to assess the suitability of turning the civil court premises into a permanent High Court.
    A source from the department of public works said there will be extensive renovations in order to meet the standards expected of a High Court and the renovations are most likely going to last for over three months and the official opening is expected in May when the second session of the High Court begins.
