Tinashe Mugabe’s Global DNA Approaches The High Court After TV Show Ban!

Television Personality Tinashe Mugabe has petitioned the High Court seeking an order to operate freely after his show The Closure DNA was banned.


In an application that was filed at the High Court, Mugabe cited Health Professions Authority of Zimbabwe, and the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientists Council of Zimbabwe (MCAZ) as respondents.

Mugabe argues that the respondents had no right to suspend his operations because his company, Global DNA is not a medical entity and is not governed by their rules and regulations.

According to the court papers when Mugabe started his operations in DNA testing, he was approached by the Health Professions Authority, which advised him to register with them.

Global DNA was advised to employ a laboratory scientist and was also registered under MCAZ as a collection site.

He said Global DNA was only a collection site and samples are sent out of Zimbabwe for testing before results are delivered to clients.

Mugabe further argues that Global DNA does not “diagnose, treat, mitigate or prevent illness, injury or disability, abnormal, physical or mental state or the symptoms in human beings as defined by the Health Professions Act.”

Mugabe also argues that employing a laboratory scientist does not mean Global DNA was now a medical facility.

“The business that applicant carries out does not make it eligible for registration as a health institution. The registration was as such unnecessary and therefore void. The respondents did not act lawfully in that they exercised powers against applicants which they did not have. Its action is therefore void,” he said in his founding affidavit.
