High Court grants Econet request to stop ZRP from seizing customer database

1 comment

The High Court of Zimbabwe has granted Econet’s urgent chamber application to temporarily suspend the execution of a court judgment which would allow law enforcement authorities to seize Econet database of customers.

The Judge who made the ruling -Justice Edith Mushore- is said to have “slammed” the warrant, comparing it to Rhodesian law enforcement conduct;

Econet had challenged the warrant on the following basis;

  1. It violated Econet’s right to privacy and the right to privacy of its 11+ million subscribers;
  2. The warrant was too vague (it did not specify which premises where covered and the officer who would execute the warrant);
  3. Chris Mutsvangwa’s affiliation to the Minister of Information further complicated the situation.
