What Our Customers Say

High Moral Intergrity - Competent Lawyer

Mr. Davison Kanokanga is well known to me. As a legal practitioner he appeared before me on a number of occasions when I was a Judge of the High Court of Zimbabwe. I find that he is a competent lawyer and a person of high moral integrity. I know that he is highly thought of by other Judges of both the High Court and Supreme Court of Zimbabwe. Prior to my becoming a Judge of the High Court of Zimbabwe I had the privilege of working with him in his firm Kanokanga & Partners for a year. I found him a pleasant and honest person to work with and indeed in his dealings with other people as well. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a professional man and a businessman.
