MDC leader Welshman Ncube yesterday said President Mugabe and PM Morgan Tsvangirai jumped the gun in appointing Zanu-PF member Jacob Mudenda as the new chairperson of the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission.

President Mugabe, Tsvangirai and DPM Arthur Mutambara on Monday agreed that Mudenda will succeed respected lawyer Reginald Austin who resigned last month.

Austin cited lack of support for the rights group by the inclusive government.

Tsvangirai told journalists after his meeting with Mugabe that Mudenda had been chosen ahead of other commissioner because of his track record as a legal practitioner.

Mudenda's appointment was met by disbelief with many questioning his credentials and impartiality.
