The Supreme Court has dismissed independent Presidential candidate Saviour Kasukuwere’s appeal against a High Court decision to disqualify him from running in the August 23 elections.
The Supreme Court confirmed the dismissal saying the appeal lacked merit.
“We carefully considered the evidence and oral submissions by both counsels. Court is of view the appeal lacks merit. Appeal be and is hereby dismissed,” reads the court ruling in part.
Kasukuwere said he is disappointed by the judgement.
“Disappointed, and we are now considering our next steps and will keep the nation informed. God bless,” Kasukuwere tweeted in response to his ban.
Kasukuwere approached the Supreme Court after High Court judge, Justice David Mangota barred him from contesting in the presidential race.
