PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa on Monday officially opened the Labour Court at a Harare event during which he also implored the country’s judiciary to rid itself of corruption.
The Zimbabwean leader also pledged government’s willingness to ensure transparency and justice within the country’s broader court system.
The new labour court now has more office space to accommodate its staff as well as key stakeholders including police, the Deputy Sheriff and an information technology hub.
For years the labour court has been operating from a small office in the CBD.
