She becomes the third Labour Court president to be elevated to the High Court after Justices Gladys Mhuri and Emilia Muchawa last month.

The trio was moved from the Labour Court to the High Court bench in an effort to meet the increased number of judicial officers created by the split of the Supreme and Constitutional Courts.

Justice Maxwell was appointed to the bench in terms of the provisions of the Constitution of Zimbabwe, which provides for the President to make such appointments after consultation with the Judicial Service Commission.

Before her appointment to the Labour Court in July 2013, Justice Maxwell was the director — Civil division in the Attorney General’s Office.
