Unvaccinated Congregants Free To Attend Church Services: High Court

THE High Court has set aside the Cabinet’s decision which says  only congregants who are fully vaccinated can attend church services.

Following the latest development that even those who are not yet vaccinated can now attend church services, the  police has been barred from arresting them.

The ruling follows an application filed by human rights lawyer Obert Kondongwe challenging the Cabinet’s decision.

In his founding affidavit that was filed along with the application, Kondongwe wrote:

“The statement issued by the Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa on the 11th of August on behalf of government following a Cabinet meeting on the compulsory Covid-19 vaccination of sit-in congregants in churches and barring unvaccinated sit-in congregants from churches is null and void to the extent that infringes constitutional rights and freedoms set out in the declaration of rights under sections 51, 52, 58 and 60,” Kondongwe argued.

He added that any purported ban on unvaccinated sit-in congregants in churches and any arrests or criminal proceedings of unvaccinated sit-in congregants of churches enforced by the Home Affairs Minister (Kazembe) Kazembe are unlawful, null and void.

“The statement issued by Mutsvangwa on behalf of the Cabinet barring unvaccinated sit-in congregants in churches be suspended pending the return date of this application.

It was also ordered that the conduct of Kazembe in enforcing the statement by Cabinet and conducting arrests and criminal proceedings against unvaccinated sit-in church congregants be suspended pending the return date of the application, New Zimbabwe reports.
