"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Jeremy Hobson I'm Robin Young? It's here and now the Supreme Court ended its session with a bang today ruling seven two that the president can be subpoenaed while in office in case involving New York prosecutors who want president trump's financial records, but the court also found in the same seven to majority led by Chief Justice Roberts that Congress does not yet have the right to trump financial information, and both cases were sent back to lower courts. Further review so as legal scholar Jeffrey toobin put it a big legal loss for the president. He does not have immunity, but a practical win while Congress may yet get some of. Of his records and the New York prosecutors most likely will nothing will be revealed to the public before the election. Let's get a quick reaction from David Coltart National. Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union which filed an amicus brief in the New York Case David. The president argued that as president he could not be subpoenaed. He called presidential harassment. The court said he could be by these New York prosecutors your reaction. I think it's a victory, not just for the New York prosecutors, but for the rule of law how the president was essentially arguing that he was above the law that he could not be compelled to respond to a subpoena. That everyone else in the United States would have to respond to and the Supreme Court resoundingly rejected his argument that he's immune from such subpoenas, and that a heightened standard of proof has to be established to to require him to. His records he's. Obligated to turn over his records like anyone else in the united, states and that's a victory for the rule of law. And yet it's a process that takes time. It will be secretive in part and will not happen before the election your thoughts on that. That's the nature of law doesn't move swiftly and grand juries are secret for good reasons but the important principle here is Should a president be able to put himself above the law to refuse to comply with subpoenas that every other American citizen would have to comply with? President Trump's argument very forcefully made, and it was very forcefully rejected by the Supreme Court including by the two justices that he appointed justice. Gorsuch and Justice Cavenaugh David Cole, national. Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union. Thank you, thank you well. Let's now bring in David Kay Johnston, the former New, York Times, investigative reporter tax policy, specialist and trump biographer. David Just David Cole say that this is a legal victory whether or not we see as Americans, we see the president's tax returns almost doesn't matter. We know you believe very strongly that it does matter why. Well I think this is a very weasley decision. By the supreme. Court, it was totally expected that the court would hold David Cole pointed out that the president is not immune. But the court punted here. The court could have said the subpoena from near prosecutors can be enforced. Secondly the house, Ways and Means Committee operates under Section Sixty one zero three of the tax code, which says that the Treasury shall. Turnover tax records on. It's the same law that applies to the president. He can look at anybody's tax returns. All make a request so I think what the court did. Here is instead of ordering immediate enforcement of the subpoenas by the ways and Means Committee the Manhattan, prosecutors. As happened in the Nixon Watergate tapes case, they sent it back for what will be months. Possibly years of litigation and that is very troubling. is suspect we will learn eventually that the only way chief justice could avoid a five four decision was to make this procedural compromise. The court should have acted when it mattered so that we would know before the election. What's going on well and there is speculation that John. Roberts wanted to have. As close to a unanimous decision as there was in the Nixon case could get, but remember also in the Nixon case, before that could be litigated president. Nixon step down onto the pressure of knowing that eventually it would be difficult Johnston. What do you think we need to know? What is it that you WanNa? Know from the president's personal taxes or the money that he allegedly paid hush money. Well there is abundant evidence in the public record already. Donald Trump and his family are long time garden variety tax cheats on a grand scale. New York. Prosecutors already know his federal tax information what they don't have our the actual returns as well as the drafts of his returns, the business records and internal documents, which both his accounting firm, and others indicated they will turn over if the subpoenas aren't forced. Germany's Deutsche. Bank has been trump's mainlander in recent years. They have admitted guilt in a scheme to accept large suspicious transactions from Russians. I'm assuming you're looking to find out more about that. Well the expectation is that the lungs that were made by Your Bank to Donald Trump when the bank would loan money to him. were backed by deposits made with Deutsche Bank by various Russian criminal elements, and that's who the oligarchs are there a the Putin's criminal gang. And if in fact Donald Trump's. were made by Deutsche only because there were offsetting deposits or letters of credit from Russian criminals. We really need to know that because it's fundamental to our national security. David Johnston former New York Times investigative reporter tax policy specialists trump biographer David. Thank you. Great you. We'll major us. Universities are joining forces to fight a trump administration policy that will strip international students of their visas unless the students take in person classes Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, filed the lawsuit in Federal Court and more than a half dozen schools are lining up in support, including Princeton Cornell and Stanford while the University of California, system says it will file its own suit. Max Larkin has been covering this. He's education reporter. At Wb you are in Boston and Max. The federal government announced this visa rule on Monday. Remind us what exactly it says. Your Jeremy so back in the spring you had campuses clothes like in a hurry right? The everybody get out sometimes in just a few days and so back then and officials that immigration custom, enforcement or ice, which polices the visa program showed this kind of uncharacteristic bit of leniency so normally international students here on a visa cannot take more than one class. Class Online, but in the spring ice basically looked the other way, and then on Monday, they started to try to head back to that status quo, so students on F, one and M. One visas can't enroll in Eighth Foley online program, and then if it's partially online, schools will need to assure immigration officials that there is at least some in person component. Do, we have a sense of why the federal government is doing this. Is this a negotiating tactic to try to force the schools to reopen in the fall fully? Get does have the feel of hardball tactic because it's broken down by the course that colleges are choosing to pursue, and it may well induce schools that are fully online to try to include some sort of pro forma person element as they try to skirt this regulation, but then I think there's still a big question of by Jeremy and I think maybe there's a kind of a fear of. Of A ratchet effect or a precedent, if I were to look the other way on this online learning or in person, learning requirement for international students for too many months in a row than it might be all that much harder to return to the status quo, so I think they're trying to reintroduce the structures gradually, even if that sort of flies in the face of public health thinking. Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Cancun Cinelli. Defended the policy earlier this week on CNN listen if they're not going to be a student or if they're going to be.

"Ensure our ability to seek out new and distinctive voices and stories that move Detroit's conversation forward and thank you in the ongoing road funding saga ago. The Michigan Senate voted on Tuesday to require a study to examine the feasibility of bringing toll roads to the state. The bill is now with the State House. The measure requires that the Michigan Department amount of transportation. Hire an outside firm to conduct a study. That would be done within the next eighteen months tools. What many options? Legislators are starting to look at considering during the lack of public. Interest in Governor Gretchen. WHITMER proposal last year to increase the gas tax. It's expected that the governor will unveil some sort of plan probably involving borrowing money to help fund fixing the roads at Wednesday night's state of the state address. We plan to talk about it on the show tomorrow and Jerry I would just add we one of the people we interviewed today. That letters will be hearing from soon. Brad Williams that Chamber Detroit Regional Chamber Chief Lobbyist up in Lansing spoke to him about the poll results which I know you covered earlier this week. That showed that Something fifty three percent if I'm not mistaken of respondents think the state has enough money already to fix the roads. Yeah that we had a really interesting conversation. And I'm hoping to get that one out this week. I think it's really relevant about that. And you know getting in depth on a few of the other issues that they covered. Yeah absolutely but but road funding you know we have got to get serious about it. I mean I know. The governor's GonNa be feeling the urgency because obviously fix the damn roads was her main main campaign slogan and her her Forty five cent. Gas Tax hike proposal went nowhere last year in the legislature. All right since we're at the Detroit Policy Conference spin and I wanted to run down a few of the interesting things we saw I if I wanted to note about Doug Song. He is the the founder of duo duo security. Do Security that's what Michigan's and that was one of Michigan's few Unicorn companies meaning. That was worth more than a billion dollars and his his talk was really interesting about regional cooperation pushing very hard for that. He really thinks that Ann Arbor is part of Metro. Detroit which I I think is pretty interesting. I'd love to get your thoughts in a second as you're from the Ann Arbor area and his disappointment in the regional transit millage failing. He says that these are the kinds kinds of basics that regions should just do and I know spin on that point about being a part of Metro Detroit. We did a poll up on twitter and it is his activists heck and people's opinions about is Ann Arbor part of this region or not. Do you have any thoughts while I retweeted it so you could also go to me at Benji and find that poll if you want to weigh in on so I grew up in Ann Arbor on Manana Albert native lived. There went college there. There was a time that I would have said No. We're not really part of Metro. Detroit or not Detroit suburb. I still I don't really consider Detroit. Ann Arbor a suburb of Detroit. I think it's its own city but I definitely think that economically the the it's all linked essentially and I think culturally more and more nowadays to the the the two cities are linked. I mean look you covered a few months ago. You of 'em's big announcement that they're going to redevelop the infamous fail jail on Grass Shit Avenue Avenue right there at three seventy five on the edge of downtown Detroit as a new you have 'em innovation center which we don't really know exactly what that's GonNa look look like. I mean in terms of what they're doing there but that's a big commitment by the University of Michigan into Detroit which is where the University of Michigan launched way back in eighteen and thirty or whatever it was longtime ago and Look Doug Song brings an interesting perspective to this too. He founded duo security back in two thousand nine I believe affirmative when staking sold a couple of years ago for two point three billion in change to Cisco Systems duo security does like multi factor authentication the security stuff. I mean he's played the game and one and I think he brought up some interesting points. He said that Detroit's comeback needs to be equitable and include the black middle. The class and that that office is one of just a handful of buildings in downtown Detroit that is owned by African Americans and that is something that I know we can say is true. Duo Security has expanded at this point getting did a couple years ago to the Julian Madison building. Which is where our friends at bamboo? DETROIT THE CO working space are located That's the building that's owned by. African American was designed by an African American architect. You also Doug also spoke a lot about his disappointment appointment and the lack of investment in education and some of the proposals to take money out of education. He didn't really name them. But like some you know some of the leading lawmakers in Lansing had proposed to actually take money out of education as one way to fund roads as a sort of a counterproposal. To the to the governor's proposal to raise the gas tax. which he I don't remember his exact words but he said this is insane? You know this is a rate. He his what he described it as a race to the bottom I would also just add. I retweeted a guy named Eric Williams on twitter. So shout out to Eric Williams his his bio said something about a social justice attorney. But Eric wrote I have no idea if there will be any follow through but the conversations happening at Detroit Policy Conference are the the right ones neighborhoods minority business community investment. I mean we're hearing these themes come up again and again here at the conference which I gotTa say is very refreshing rushing. I think I I agree with Mr Williams. These are the right topics for the city but the key as a as anything conference related is going to be follow-through followthrough speaking of the city. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan took the stage and a lot of the things. Frankly spent he talked about. That would be pretty familiar to us. I mean it kind of was a greatest hits things so I don't I'm not going to rehash all of it but there were a couple of things I wanted to pull out first off. He said that he's campaigning. Hard for Democratic presidential candidate. Joe Biden. I mean I think it's a pretty open secret that he loves uncle. Joe and Uncle Joe loves him to special BROMANCE UNCLE. Joe You know if Joe Biden wins the nomination or you know much less the presidency I definitely look forward to the onion is gonNA become must read again because they had a field day with Joe Biden back when he was vicepresident. Wow I also wonder too if I don't I mean I've only heard rumors and who knows what kind of this is just wild speculation. But I wonder if that's the kind of thing. Where does Mike Look at? Being part of an administration and tying into that he will later announce later this year. Not Right now. If he's going to be running for mayor again He went ahead and said that if he he has the overwhelming support in the city has today that he will in fact do it. But I mean it's interesting that this is just wild speculation wild speculation relation. But it's interesting that he didn't say yes. I'm running again. Yeah it is interesting. I mean you would send that. We've talked about this. I think he's got the job. As long as is he wants it and as long frankly as he can keep himself out of trouble you know so far I think he's he does have the majority support in in the city city. which does indeed suggest that you know? Maybe he's got designs on something bigger like like something like a job with a Biden administration ministration for example. We'll and finally spent. I wanted to talk to you about this. When we both saw a David Coltart the new Oakland County executives presentation in speech interesting? I wanted to talk to you about this for a bit because you actually covered Oakland county politics for a while. You are a veteran of the Oakland press and I think he said some things and end the things that I never thought that I would hear out of an Oakland County executive. Yes so just quick background. Coulter is the former mayor of Ferndale and before that he was on the Oakland County Commission. so He's been around politics for a while. He was appointed in August.

But as regards domestic business. The business environment is just as difficult as it has ever been. And as you pointed out. We are affected by a government that is profligate. Just in the run-up to the elections mnangagwa's announced, for example, at twenty two percent pay rise for the military for soldiers. That is in the context of a declining economy and we say whiz the money coming from in recent weeks. We've seen the bond notes the the, the pseudo Zimbabwe currency.

So the business environment trim, it remains highly problematic, and we need to see a shift from this writ Ceric of being open for business to to practical action on the ground which will make for a conducive business environment.

"Emerson Mnangagwa was sworn in as the new president of Zimbabwe on Sunday. This comes after the election campaign which was widely seen to be neither free no fair. Although the vote itself was peaceful in the immediate often beyond me shot and killed at least six demonstrators and a campaign of retribution has been taking place against polling agents and opposition supporters across the country. The results of the vote, which in the constitutional court by Nelson Chamisa and his opposition MDC alliance, the court ruling dismissing. The challenge and confirming mnangagwa's president will be it with a smaller percentage of the vote has drawn international condemnation and would appear to indicate that the judiciary is highly partisan. Well, David Coltart is a human rights lawyer and a former MDC minister for education and a Senator in the Zimbabwe government. He joins me on the line from Bulawayo. David was the court case fair. Good morning. Gene note wasn't. It it was. Completely unjust from beginning to end the way the court proceedings were managed in my view was unjust for a very complicated case. The the original petition was over two hundred pages long. It had very detailed allegations, not just of voter fraud, but of constitutional violations. And they gave the lower twenty minutes to put forward his argument before the case even began. The government had fictive denied to me. So three South African Council who again, to argue particular aspects of the case. So just at the beginning, the the case got off to a very poor start. And I mean, when doesn't have to have a lot of legal knowledge to see that the stage being erected for the inauguration before the hearing has been handed down. Kili mean something's up will exactly in famous. The constitution does say that within forty eight hours of the constitutional court handing down its judgment. The new president has to be inaugurated Serse. Suppose they could have used that that argument. But we had far too many other stories going about how prepared they were for Emma Simpson gangway to be the chosen candidate will or others president at which indicated that of course, they knew the result. So what happens next legally can can there be an appeal, any kind of challenge? No, that's the end of the road. The constitutional court is the highest court in the land of the constitution itself is very clear that any challenge to an election ends with that judgment Nelson, Tim ISA has appealed to an African court, but it's largely symbolic. It has no power to dictate to this Imbaba Ian government toot to, for example, reverse any decision. So does it. The government really needs the international community, not least to stabilize the economy what can be done then by other countries is it just seen as interfering in a sovereign state. To the international community going forward is that we don't need any waste of agenda. We simply need international community to. Referred to symboblic constitution as Bob. We actually has a very good constitution was passed by referendum in two thousand and thirteen, although test some Arizona. Generally it is an excellent document and what the international community needs to do is to hold misdemeanor godwit to the principles contained in that constitution. What next then for this very divided country. I mean, there are two schools of thought one is that we just need to pull together and four symboblic to be a nation that works. We must go forward. And there are others who say, no, this is completely unfair, and we should never ever support this man who is really committed genocide and it has stolen election. One point two, Gina, this is known about Amazon. Managua wasn't about Robert Mugabe. It's about an unjust system. At present. It's about the overwhelming control that the military has in our society, and that is what needs to change. We've had thirty eight years of this in particular in the last two decades. We've had the military involved in the DRC involved in business. We've had them she involved in our own diamond fields. We've had the military involved in effecting the outcome of elections and swatting the the will of the people and that is the issue going forward. If we just accept the situation, we will result in it while they will result in in us having a military dictatorship innocence for the next ten twenty years. And if that is the case, Zimbabwe's potential will never be realized. Geiger's catchphrases Zimbabwe's open for business.

"And since he has spoken Turkish lira has plummeted even further well. And of course, President Trump has been applying yet more pressure. He's just tweeted that he's authorizing a doubling of the tariffs on steel and aluminium with respect to Turkey that's just come in in the past hour or so what's impact with that Huw. Well, that will hurt because aluminum and steel apparently will be targeting deter cash construction sector and the recent economic boom in Turkey. The economic growth in Turkey is very much dependent on the construction sector. And if the construction sector is hurt, then Turkish economy will hurt and already because of the fluctuation of the Turkish lira because of the loss in its value, dramatic loss or ready there had been issues in importing of these materials. And now Turkey will face even harder. Harder face and already people in the marketplaces who were buying stuff because Turkey has been importing materials were already hurt. They will feel the squeeze more and more and the government will need to act somehow selene Garrett in Turkey. The election results in Zimbabwe represent a total negation of the will of the people. That is how a lawyer of the opposition MDC described the disputed vote. At the end of July, the MDC is submitting its case to the constitutional court today with a deadline under Imbaba and law of midnight, an MD Senator David Coltart the international community to put pressure on president Mnangagwa to abide by Zimbabwe's constitution, and he warned the president of the consequences if he called the opposition MDC has a long history of being committed to nonviolence of being committed to the rule. Law of committed to respecting the constitution, and if he listens to to us, then we can still stabilize this country and take it forward. But if he decides that he's going to go to learn that he's to rule by means of coercion. And then we, we have a very problematic future hit. Meanwhile, the opposition politician Tendai BT appeared in court in handcuffs on judges of inciting violence by rejecting president, Mnangagwa victory in the election, at least six people were killed two days off to the fighting clashes between the security forces and MDC alliance supporters who alleged leader. Nelson Chamisa had been roped victory. I'll stack correspondent. Sin guide Neo is in Harare for the latest on the MDC's legal challenge. The deadline is creeping ever closer, but there is still no sign off the MDC alliance lawyers. We understand that they might file after. Lunch, but it's not clear what time that will be, who does have been camped outside. And and the question is, what time will they file? Would they leave it to the last minute or will they will file on time? So this this me Mr. Mnangagwa is still going to go ahead as planned with the swearing in ceremony on Sunday. As he said, he would do. The invitations were sent out to various heads of states around the world, and we understand that fourteen had confirmed that they would attend, but the government has always maintained that that Sunday date was tentative by law. They cannot go ahead with an inauguration. If the MDC alliance files, it's papers today because the traditional court might dispense with the case as soon as possible, either today or tomorrow, but they have fourteen days to to give a judgement. So it's likely that if the NBC does go ahead and file that that inauguration will have to be postponed. Until this matter is resolved in court, what to make of ten diabetes detention and subsequent release on bail. Interesting that president Emmerson Mnangagwa wins out on Twitter yesterday and declared that he had intervened to ensure that tend not was released. MS raised a lot of questions here assured, some people that perhaps he wants to abide by the rule of law. But the other issue is that how much the Christian is how much influence does he have on the judiciary that he can intervene in matters of the court as David Todd, stay in via the MDC hugely influential, especially Tendai Biti. He's a former finance minister. He's influential in Washington. He has the era. So what happens now essentially depends on what happens in in government in the courts here today, but also with the opposition will contest at these results and what comes out of that briefly still many challenges facing the new president?.

"Plummeting lira even further, there's an overwhelming concern amongst Turkish people because the country seeming to be in full blown currency crisis. At the moment, the also at the brink of an economic crisis, the Turkish people will need to be reassured. Rebecca kes- be spoke to selene in estan, boo, and asked her for the latest. The latest crisis has been triggered by a rift between Washington and on cadre over the arrest of a US pastor Andrew Brunson. He has been jailed since last year and Washington was expecting him to be released in the latest hearing, but he wasn't and then sanctions imposed by Washington followed, and he was put on house arrest. There have been negotiations and talks held between the two countries, and there has been pressure put on Turkey for this passes release. But Turkey wants to apparently use Mr. Brunson as a bargaining chip as an exchange and two for prisoner exchange, for instance, and in on cut, it doesn't back off. That is why the rift has been strengthened and deepened and we have seen the lira full to record lows. All time lows. Actually, today there was a time when the Turkish lira lost fourteen percent of its value only overnight, and we're talking about a currency that already has lost nearly forty percent of its value since the beginning of the year. So very serious issues at the moment and finance minister in that report. I was saying we expecting, we're expecting him to speak later in the day, and he has spoken and he said, the independence of the central Bank is crucial and that Turkey will have a stronger budget. Discipline Turkey will emerge much more powerful from this recent crisis, but he didn't exactly clarify how what steps would be taken exactly to halt the collapse of the lira. And since he has spoken Turkish lira has plummeted even further well. And of course, President Trump has been applying yet. More pressure is just tweeted that he's authorizing a doubling of the tariffs on steel and aluminium with resp-. Specked to Turkey that's just come in in the past hour or so, what's impact with that have? Well, dot will hurt because aluminium and steel apparently will be targeting Turkish construction sector and the recent economic boom in Turkey. The economic growth in Turkey is very much dependent on the construction sector. And if the construction sector is hurt, then Turkish economy will hurt and already because of the fluctuation of the Turkish lira because of the loss in its value, dramatic loss or read either had been issues in importing of these materials. And now Turkey will face even harder. Harder face and already people in the marketplaces who were buying stuff because Turkey has been importing these materials. We're already hurt. They will feel the squeeze more and more and the government will need to act somehow selene Garrett in Turkey. The election results in Zimbabwe represent a total negation of the will of the people. That is how a lawyer of the opposition MDC described the disputed vote at the end of July, the MDC is submitting its case to the constitutional court today with a deadline under Imbaba and law of midnight, an MD Senator David Coltart urged the international community to put pressure on president Mnangagwa to abide by Zimbabwe's constitution, and he warned the president of the consequences. If he knows the opposition MDC aligns has a long history of being committed to nonviolence of being committed to the rule. Lov committed to respecting the constitution. And if he listens to to us, then we can still stabilize this country and take it forward. But if he decides that he's going to go to loan, that he's gained two to rule by means of coercion. And then we, we have a very problematic future hit. Meanwhile, the opposition politician Tendai BT appeared in court in handcuffs on charges of inciting violence by rejecting president, Mnangagwa victory in the election, at least six people were killed two days off to voting clashes between the security forces and MDC alliance supporters who alleged that their leader Nelson Chamisa had been rolled to victory.

This country. Many, of my colleagues have gone to ground they, are insights houses they not sleeping in their homes at night and the question. I put, to the British government is and those who who might be wanting to play this regime I talk about a. New dispensation I didn't see anything new in this I see, all the tactics, of Mugabe and all the tactics used by this regime. For the lost city eight years Let's talk to Peter Godwin whose as Imbaba and human rights law and expert on the country's politics his book the fear charts the violent aftermath of former President Robert Mugabe's. Election defeat in two thousand eight welcome. To the program, Peter let's talk about ten diabetes. I what have you heard about what happened to him so my latest information and bear in. Mind I'm not on the ground and so I you know I can't token confirmative this Plum. Getting from a lot of sources the fact that, ten diabetes is now is now. In Zambia claiming asylum that he was released. Or he somehow Zambians. Got him back and he's now on his. Way to Lusaka the cap design Byan capital that's what I'm hearing from multiple sources as you say it was an. Extremely confused situation I have seen. Footage of a kind of Meli in. What appears to be no man's land it seems to me that what what probably happened is that he, got through Through. The Bob Whitten side and he was approaching the Zambian side and at some point what looks. To be like playing clothes policemen and military intelligence is what I was hearing Sort of grab him I mean it's a big crowd of people probably a dozen twenty four people many. Goes down in the Malayan, is DASA's knocked, off and he's grabbed but he appears to have now been, released and be on the ambiance side, to the best of my knowledge after his lawyer told us he'd been. Arrested we managed to get through to him on his mobile phone and he said he hadn't been arrested he'd been abducted and then? It became unclear and we lost the line is it possible, that Mr. BT has made this up? In order to excite more interest among his supporters I've been Tendai BT for for twenty years I testified in the US Senate together with him After the. Military coup in Zimbabwe often mnangagwa's came to power. In all the time. I've known Tendai. Biti he's never done anything or said anything. Like that he's never made anything he's being completely You know he's. Being completely, truthful in in what he said and what he's done I would be astonished if that were. The case how important to figure is he in the opposition he's an extremely important, figure I mean he, was essentially the number two to Morgan, Tsvangirai when Morgan Tsvangirai ran the opposition MDC party he then in the government of national unity that Mugabe exceeded to off the disputed two thousand eight elections ten diabetes was the minister of finance very effective minister of finance who who helped, bring Zimbabwe out of its economic nosedive and he is he is a very trusted experienced left tenants to. The new, leader of the. MDC Nelson. Chamisa who bear mind is only forty years. Old so is quite young and needs experienced politicians like ten diabetes around ten in the past has been arrested multiple times. He's been tortured he's. Been he's been Rast he's being you know he's he's very experienced opposition figure in Zimbabwe in firmament where are. We at the moment with the election results it's been officially challenged hasn't it and, yet the president is, due to be sworn in this weekend, is that correct yes the president sent out invitations to the diplomatic corps etc and neighboring heads of state that he intends to have his inauguration this Sunday the twelfth of August the opposition have now lodged an appeal against the election results, which with the constitutional court and according to Bobby constitution that's the constitutional court has to hear it within. I think. Twelve days maybe. It's two. Weeks anyway As far as I can see from the. Constitution while that objection is being is being considered by the constitutional court Mr. mnangagwa's cannot go ahead and inaugurates himself as president. He has. To wait for the constitutional, court to make a decision now it's, possible that the. Constitutional court will make a, decision before, Sunday I, don't have, an, enormous amount of confidence in the constitutional remind these. Are judges that were all appointed by Zanu PF regime? In in in a, government that? Has has specialized in state capture over the years but you never. Know I mean? This. Is new territory Mr Mugabe is no longer you, know. President of Zimbabwe for the first time in thirty seven years so I don't. Want to prejudge what the constitutional court may may say there they can do a, number of things they can they can they can give, the election a clean Bill of health and say. The results stands they can order a rerun they Runoff rather between. The. First two candidates they, can order, an entire rerun within sixty days they have very wide discretion.
