The Judiciary and the Zimbabwean Constitution – edited by Dr. James Tsabora, aims to provide an insight on the performance of the Zimbabwe judiciary, based on its jurisprudence, in its interpretation of the new national Constitution.

The book is concerned with the examination of the ‘due process of the law’ and reaffirming the centrality of the judiciary in the promotion and safeguarding of individual rights and freedom entrenched by the Constitution. It contains chapters touching upon a broad range of issues including but not limited to electoral justice, the right to fair labour practices, the right to administrative justice, rights of children, the right to sexual and reproductive health, environmental rights, and the justiciability of socio-economic rights regarding health and water under the new constitutional dispensation.

The Judiciary and the Zimbabwean Constitution offers interesting perspectives on the nature, mandate, and structure of the judiciary and its role in promoting constitutionalism, the rule of law, and human rights.
