JSC Mourns Late High Court Judge

By Anyway Yotamu

HARARE – The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has described the late High Court Judge Justice Clement Phiri as an astute and unassuming judge who left  footprints in Zimbabwe’s justice delivery system.

Justice Phiri died on Sunday.

 In a statement, the JSC said Justice Phiri was among a group of 46 candidates that participated in the first public interview in 2015 and the judiciary was poorer without him.

“An astute but unassuming Judge, he will be fondly remembered for his contribution in the development of Zimbabwean jurisprudence in the 34 years he was part of the justice delivery system,” JSC said.

Justice Phiri was appointed to the High Court bench five years ago along with four other judges Justice Jester Helena Charewa, Justice Tawanda Chitapi, Justice Davison Moses Foroma, Justice Nyaradzo Priscilla Munangati-Manongwa and Justice Edith Kuda Mushore.

 Before his appointment as a judge, Justice Phiri worked as a senior lawyer in private practice.
