Magistrate Ngoni Nduna rules that lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa stands down to represent award winning journalist and film maker Hopewell Chin’ono and directs that the Law Society of Zimbabwe should cancel her licence for “scandalasing the court”

Mtetwa is accused of contempt due to comments posted on a Facebook page associated with her. The State prosecutor said that Mtetwa must have taken corrective action against people running the “Beatrice Mtetwa and The Rule of Law” Facebook page, when she realised that they were denigrating the courts. 

He (Magistrate Nduna) further alleged that Mtetwa’s conduct was “unethical and unprofessional” by failing to act on information produced under her name that denigrated the courts.
