However, following ZANU-PF infighting, Gula-Ndebele was placed on a period of suspension in March 2007,[1] before being dismissed from office in May 2008. He was succeeded by Justice Bharat Patel, who served as acting AG until Mugabe appointed Johannes Tomana as the permanent Attorney-General in December.
