Zim Lawyer Lament Over the Recent Difficulty He is Experiencing Practicing in South Africa

Foreign trained lawyers who used to practice as professional advocate in South Africa are currently living in complete frustration following the decision of the constitutional court to end the privilege given to foreign trained lawyers to practice in the country.

We would recall that the constitutional court upheld a prohibition that bars locally trained foreign lawyers who are legally resident in South Africa, but do not hold citizenship or permanent residency, from being enrolled or allowed to practise law here.

Meanwhile, a Zimbabwean lawyer who is currently affected by the decision has taken to social media to express dissatisfaction. The young advocate who bears the name Mr Lee on Twitter said he and other lawyer colleagues who studied law in South Africa are having tough times in practicing their profession.

Mr Lee advised his fellow countrymen and lawyers who were affected to return to Zimbabwe and register to vote duringthe forthcoming general election.

According to aggrieved Mr Lee's statement on Twitter:

"Tough times for our colleagues who studied law in South Africa. Lets go and register to vote in Zimbabwe for CCC Zimbabwe. 2008 the MDC won got in the GNU and the economy of improved creating sustainable opportunities for many young Zimbabweans"
