- He ordered the immediate release of human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa in 2013. He heard her bail application at night and at his Darwendale farm, something he was attacked for by media linked to the government.
- Justice Hungwe was alleged to have unprocedurally granted a notice of withdrawal in a house wrangle between Old Mutual chief executive, Mr Jonas Mushosho and Lloyd Mudimu, the man who bought the former’s property. Justice Hungwe reportedly granted a notice of withdrawal after he was allegedly misled that Mudimu had dropped his lawsuit against Mushosho, when in fact the case was still pending. 
- Justice Hungwe allegedly failed to pass sentence on Jonathan Mutsinze of Nyameni, Marondera whom he had convicted of murder and robbery after he lost the court record. Mutsinze had spent 10 years in remand prison awaiting sentencing. Justice Hungwe later sentenced him to two life terms in prison.
- He granted a search warrant to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) to search the offices of three Zanu PF Cabinet ministers, Mines Minister Obert Mpofu, Indigenisation Minister Saviour Kasukuwere, and Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Nicholas Goche.
