CCC MP Job Sikhala Engages US-based Law Firm To Fight His Detention

CCC MP Job Sikhala Engages US-based Law Firm To Fight His Detention

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Member of Parliament for Zengeza West, Job Sikhala, has engaged a leading international law firm, Amsterdam & Partners LLP, based in Washington DC and London, to fight his detention for allegedly inciting unrest.

Sikhala, who has to date been arrested about 70 times, without a single conviction, was arrested in the aftermath of the recent murder of CCC activist Moreblessing Ali by Zanu PF-linked Pius Mukandi alias Jamba. He was arrested with 12 other opposition activists, including another MP Godfrey Sithole.

A letter by the law firm’s managing partner Andrew J. Durkovich, who specialises in cross-border or multi-jurisdictional disputes, including international litigation and arbitration, as well as political advocacy, confirms Sikhala will now be represented without charge by top attorneys.

Sikhala, who is also a lawyer, is the attorney for the Ali family which has refused to bury their daughter until the opposition MP and senior leader is released.

The Ali family is now reportedly living in hiding and fear after being threatened by suspected state security agents and ZANU PF militants amid clashes with the CCC.

Sikhala and others have been denied bail.

He remains detained at Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison.

Looking at Sikhala story it's one of those things where by u remain in prison to prove who is ruling . It's not protecting the pple from Sikhala.Varume ngatiitei mushe CCC munotii kana Sikhala arimukati handei tiite basa ndapedza hangu mangwana ndiwe.

Zvabuda pachena. His western handlers hired a CIA lawyer to represent their puppet. Manje hazvishandi. He must remain incarcerated to protect the mass from neo colonialism toxins that the CIA recruited him to spread.

Interesting twist!
Sikhala & Susan Mutami's cases have crossed the Zim border into the international law domain.
This means the Zim justice system will be on the international media spotlight.
I pray this development oils the rusty wheels of justice for the two .

An accused person is lawfully allowed to engage a lawyer of his choice across the whole world. There is nothing questionable which Advocate Job Sikhala has done.

In 1980 the late Edgar Tekere hired a lawyer, QC, from England who defended him in his murder charge. Edgar Tekere was acquitted.

As for war, Russia has its hands full with Ukraine and doesn't have the spare capacity to support your rapist. In the strategic view of things, we (Zimbabwe) has nothing that Russians will care to fight for. That my dear is the blunt truth

Allow me space to explain procedures which are correct. I can hire a lawyer anywhere at anytime at my cost or any law firm may offer to help me free of charge like what has happened with Advocate Job Sikhala.

A lawyer who has been hired from outside Zimbabwe or has offered to help free of charge, is required to complete certain procedures like registration and other procedures before he starts representing Wiwa [ Job Sikhala ]. That lawyer may fail at those registration procedures.
