Zimbabwe’s former First Lady Grace Mugabe has lost the exhuming case.
Grace wanted Chief Zvimba’s order to be suspended because he served the papers at Mugabe’s Borrowdale mansion instead of his rural Zvimba home.
She also wanted the ruling to be suspended on the grounds that the chief ordered her to pay a fine with cattle that are not in his area of jurisdiction.
Grace also questioned the chief’s jurisdiction over the matter.
But yesterday, Chinhoyi magistrate Ruth Moyo said Bona had no right to apply for judicial review of the ruling that was handed down by Chief Zvimba in the case between Grace and Tinos Manongovere.
This is the second defeat for the Mugabe family.
Early this month, Moyo dismissed an application by Mugabe’s children, Bona, Tinotenda Robert Jnr and Bellarmine to suspend Chief Zvimba’s ruling.
Mugabe’s children have since appealed against Moyo’s ruling.
Meanwhile the President of Zimbabwe His Excellency Emmerson Mnangagwa distanced himself from the court ruling.
He said he did not influence the court ruling.
