On February 8, 2017, the Constitutional Court of Zimbabwe rejected a legal challenge to President Robert Mugabe’s presidency that claimed he had violated the constitution and was unfit for office due to his advanced age. According to a news article on the ruling, the Court based its rejection on the applicant’s failure to follow proper filing procedures because Mugabe had not been personally served with papers. The applicant, Promise Mkwananzi, who is a political activist, has thirty days to refile. Under the laws of Zimbabwe “if the top court finds that a sitting president has violated the constitution, it can order parliament to start an investigation that could lead to impeachment.”
