Mr Patrick Chinamasa is the ZANU PF party spokesperson.
He has been the leading member of the ruling ZANU–PF party, He became first deputy Agriculture Minister and then-Attorney General of Zimbabwe; he also has held the role of Leader of the Zimbabwean Parliament.
Following his appointment, many Zimbabwean judges resigned, complaining of political pressure.
On 9 February 2001 after Chief Justice Anthony Gubbay took early retirement at his suggestion, Chinamasa held meetings with senior Justices Ahmed Ebrahim and Nicholas McNally (the last white justice on the Zimbabwean Court) and told them for their own safety to leave.
