Zimbabwe court dismisses opposition logo ban

A high court has dismissed an urgent court application attempting to ban a politician from using the opposition party’s logo and slogan.

Nelson Chamisa wanted the court to ban Thokozani Khupe from using the Movement for Democratic Change’s logo.

Chamisa and Khupe both claim to be the rightful leaders of the party.

They have been fighting over the leadership since Morgan Tsvangirai died in February.

The judgment is yet to be released, so it’s not clear whether the judge dismissed the case because he disagreed with the matter being characterised as urgent or whether he ruled on the substance of the arguments about legitimacy./Reuters
