The provisional order was issued on 18 June 2018 after Mhlanga’s lawyer Chris Mhike successfully applied for the recovery of the Samsung S7 Edge.

“Failing compliance with this order by the respondent (Mukupe), the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is authorised to assist the Messenger of Court – Harare to extract Applicant’s (Mhlanga) mobile phone handset from the respondent if the Messenger of Court faces resistance,” Ramaboea ordered.
Mukupe was also ordered to pay costs of the application.
