Zimbabwe: Courts to livestream cases to raise public awareness

The Zimbabwean judiciary will soon start livestreaming court hearings in a bid to raise public awareness and promote transparency in the cases.

This, according to Chief Justice Malaba, will provide the vital knowledge to all the stakeholders, especially to those who could not attend the court premises themselves and see all the key moments as well as the final verdict.

Malaba explained the measure has been in mind since 2018 when the presidential election petition hearing was broadcasted live on the national television.

He further added that the initiative was an eye-opener for the authorities, who thought it was a good idea to show people how the justice system worked.
