Ngcukaitobi and Mpofu will be key members of Chamisa’s legal team in this high-profile case.
Chamisa is challenging President Emmerson Mnangagwa's narrow victory in the July poll. He says he’s got overwhelming evidence to prove he was cheated out of victory.
Cameras are banned from Zimbabwe’s courts, but there’ve been calls for the authorities to make an exception, and allow next week’s proceedings to be broadcast live.
