BREAKING: CCC's Job Sikhala, Godfrey Sithole Bail Ruling Wednesday

BREAKING: CCC's Job Sikhala, Godfrey Sithole Bail Ruling Wednesday

A Harare Magistrate has reserved a ruling in a bail hearing case for opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Members of Parliament (MPs) for Zengeza West and Chitungwiza North, in that order, Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole of Chitungwiza North.

The duo was arrested last week in connection with the violence that erupted in Nyatsime, Chitungwiza at a memorial service of slain CCC activist, Moreblessing Ali with authorities accusing the two of inciting the violence.

They were brought to court on Monday in leg irons, accused of inciting violence in Nyatsime.

Prosecutors Michael Reza, Chris Mutangadura and Lovemore Masuku allege that Sikhala, who is also the Ali family lawyer, urged Zimbabweans to avenge Ali’s murder.

Sithole is charged with participating in inciting violence and arranging lorries which allegedly transported CCC activists who attacked the homes of ZANU PF supporters.

Both denied the charges through defence lawyers Jeremiah Bamu and Alec Muchadehama who said the charges against their clients were a creation by the state.

Bamu last week said that Sikhala is not the one who posted the video in which he is alleged to have incited violence and that he did not utter any statements inciting violence.

There us no greater lunatic than the one who is afraid of any slight noise. @Chawabvunza, the ZRP is targeting the wrong people. The ZANU malcontents who disturbed the peace at the funeral wake for Mobby should be the ones in the dock. Legally speaking violence when protecting life, limb and property is admissible at law. Therefore even if Sikhala had called defensive violence he would be within his rights. However with a captured police and judiciary system, keeping them incarcerated fa week just for a bail application is a travesty of justice.

ZANU by so persecuting Sikhala & Co. are digging their own political graves. When sanctions are applied for human rights abuses you are the ones that shout loudest, condoning the uncondonable. After the Russian fiasco in Ukraine and the polarisation of world geopolitics, I feel ZANU has also made another unwise decision in aligning itself with Russia and its 5 acolytes. Sanctions are going to be upped and for poor Zimbabweans we are caught in the crossfire because of silly politicking.

Mark my words, any attempt at subverting the popular will of the majority in 2023 is not going to go unpunished.

These are visionary CCC cadres who should be harassed so that the rest get fear. We rule with an iron first. We the merciless creatures

I agree with you. Sikhala, Sithole and Masaraure are hard-nuts. They are causing us sleepless nights. They want to expose our evil acts

I sympathize with both comrades Advocate Job Sikhala and Honorable Godfrey Sithole because these are trumped up charges. It seems like Police are avoiding the real culprits who triggered the Nyatsime disturbances. These are the two ZANU PF Member of Parliament and a councillor who enterfered with the Moreblessing Ali's funeral. CCC leadership must brace up at continuing seeing things like what is happening now. Citizens are waiting for Wednesday to find out if the duo shall be placed on bail. Both are good candidates for bail.
