The Zimbabwe Constitutional Amendment Bill (Number 2), which scraps the running mate in the supreme law and gives the president power to appoint judges, sailed through Senate. Sixty-five senators, including at least five from the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, voted for the Bill that was opposed by 10 legislators. Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi described the passage of the bill as “historic” while critics and some lawmakers called it a disastrous moment for Zimbabwe.
