The late Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku’s wife Farai, has petitioned the High Court seeking an order compelling the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to facilitate payment of her husband’s terminal benefits and pension contributions by the government.
Farai said she has not received terminal benefits and pension contributions 12 months after Chidyausiku’s death. She cites the JSC, Pension Master, Pay Master and the Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs minister Ziyambi Ziyambi as respondents. Said Farai:
The second and third respondents (Pension Master, Pay Master) despite being aware that I am the only surviving spouse have refused, failed and/or neglected to pay out the pension to me. They have not processed the terminal benefits and pension.
