Law expert and the University of Zimbabwe lecturer Professor Lovemore Madhuku has questioned the judgment ruled by Magistrate  Ngoni Nduna which barred prominent human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa from representing her client Hopewell Chin’ono.

According to Madhuku it is the right of the accused to be represented by a lawyer of his choice, this shows that society is democratic.

“The right of an accused person to be represented by a lawyer of choice is one of the most fundamental rights in a democratic society. I believe the court’s decision to bar Beatrice Mtetwa from representing Hopewell will not survive an urgent review by the High Court.” Madhuku said.
