High Court judge Justice Pisirayi Kwenda has also ordered that the decision by prisons authorities barring MDC Alliance legislator Joana Mamombe from seeking medication at a private hospital was unlawful.

The judgement has been overtaken by events as it comes at a time the lawmaker is already out on bail.

Mamombe was forcibly removed from her hospital bed while battling acute stomach pains prompting her mother Kudzai Chiwanza to sue ZPCS and Justice minister Ziyambi Ziyambi.

She wanted the actions by the authorities be declared unlawful, cruel and inhumane.

She also wanted the respondents to pay costs of suit.

Kwenda has ordered that the prisons and anyone acting on their behalf should allow Mamombe to be treated by Dr of choice and health faculty of choice without any disturbances.
