Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has extended the tenure of the chief justice by five years following contentious changes to the constitution that allowed for the extension and are being challenged in court by lawyers. Reuters reports that Chief Justice Luke Malaba had been due to retire on Saturday when he turns 70, but the ruling ZANU-PF party used its majority in parliament to amend the constitution, allowing the president to extend the retirement age of senior judges to 75 years if they proved they were in good health. The move, and the constitutional change, has been roundly condemned by the opposition.
