Zimbabwe-born businessman Mutumwa Mawere filed an urgent Constitutional Court application on Tuesday asking the court to confirm constitutional provisions on dual citizenship and to stop the 30-day voter registration exercise until his case is finalised.
Mawere, who is South African by naturalisation, says he was forced to seek legal redress after Registrar General Tobaiwa Mudede told him to renounce his foreign citizenship in order to acquire Zimbabwean identification documents.
