Zimbabwe Court's Coup Ruling Raises Concern Over Mnangagwa

A High Court judge in Zimbabwe has ruled that the military takeover leading to ex-President Robert Mugabe's resignation was legal, and therefore not a coup d'etat. At the same time, another court ruled that Mugabe's sacking of his former deputy, current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was illegal - prompting fears over judicial independence under the country's new administration.
