The Supreme Court (of Zimbabwe) has declared Bishop Nolbert Kunonga and his board of trustees legitimate and granted them control over all properties belonging to the Anglican Diocese of Harare. Deputy Chief Justice Luke Malaba yesterday upheld an application by the Diocesan Trustees for the Diocese of Harare led by Bishop Kunonga. The trustees sought to nullify an appeal by the Church of the Province of Central Africa challenging a High Court decision by Justice Ben Hlatshwayo to declare the board legitimate. Bishop Kunonga and the trustees argued that Justice Hlatshwayo’s July 24, 2009 order should be operational.
