Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Cde Ziyambi Ziyambi says the appointment of eight new judges to the high court will see to it that the backlog of cases will be substantially reduced at the court. In an interview with Star FM News after the swearing in of the judges in Harare Thursday, Minister Ziyambi also said the clear separation of power between the executive and the judiciary ensures that judges are not arm-twisted to make favourable decisions to the executive.

Two of the appointed judges who spoke to Star FM News said they were grateful for the opportunity they have been accorded to serve as high court judges. Judge Philda Muzofa, one of the two female judges encouraged other women to take a clean route in climbing up the ladder in their different workplaces.  Judge Benjamin Chikowero said it was possible to serve without fear or favour and he would do so during his tenure.
