MUGABE'S THREATS BACKFIRE

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe's recent threats on the judiciary have prompted opposition political parties to renew the impeachment motion against the Zanu PF leader who is in the last month has been under siege as protests against his rule mount. 
Despite his attempt to remain in control, political parties say the situation is ripe to put in motion the impeachment of Africa's oldest ruler. Mabvuku MP James Maridadi has been leading calls for Mugabe to be impeached, arguing that he is no longer fit to remain as President. 
Maridadi has found support from lawyers, following Mugabe's threats against judges whom he accuses of being negligent by granting orders allowing demonstrations.  He (Mugabe) is apparently, failing to deal with rising protests against his long time rule which his rivals say has been disastrous. 
Last week, police invoked Statutory Instrument 101A banning demonstrations in the capital for two weeks just 18 hours before 18 opposition parties were due to hold a mega demonstration.
Mugabe lashed out at the country's judges for allowing demonstrations against his government by opposition parties and pro-democracy groups, saying there was a broader plot to topple liberation movements in the region. 
The 92-year-old leader spoke in the wake of intensifying protests against his rule and claimed the opposition had been given huge sums of money to destabilise his government. Mugabe issued a chilling warning against judges that allow citizens to exercise their rights to protest against the government. 
Mugabe's rant came two days after police banned all demonstrations in the capital through Statutory Instrument 101a of 2016 issued by officer commanding Harare central district chief superintendent Newbert Saunyama, which the opposition parties are now challenging in the courts. 
He launched a tirade against judges for passing judgments that allow protesters to proceed with demonstrations in the face of sanctions.
