Zim represented by 11 students for this year’s moot competition

By ZBC Reporter

ZIMBABWE is the only country that will be representing Africa at the High School Moot International Competition 2022.

The Zimbabwean team consists of 9 girls and 2 boys who have been selected from different schools across the country.

These 11 team mates are all decorated debate members who have debated at an international level.

Ruvimbo Simbi, the team leader said she is confident that they are going to bring the title home while Nqobile Dube, the team’s head coach and a lawyer by profession, said the team has been preparing for a month now and they have had some help from other lawyers as well.

The tournament happens after every two years. This year, 16 countries will be participating in the online competition that started on Saturday 14 May.

In November last year, Zimbabwean law students left the country for Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Belgium for an international moot competition.

Nyasha Chiramba from Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University together with Chiedza Banda and Lincoln Majogo from the University of Zimbabwe were selected to take part in the international migration and refugee law moot court competition.

A moot court competition is like real life arguments in court but being done by students. Students get a hypothetical case and they are allocated sides either as prosecution or defence and they will then make arguments before a panel of judges.
