Sternford Moyo, a distinguished figure in Zimbabwean legal circles, passed away this morning following a brief illness. Moyo, renowned as a senior partner and chairman at Harare-based law firm Scanlen and Holderness, was esteemed domestically and internationally for his legal prowess and leadership.
