A Harare deputy chief magistrate Gibson Mandaza has denied bail to Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Members of Parliament (MPs), Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole.
He remanded the duo in custody to July 6. Their lawyers will launch an urgent appeal at the High Court
Magistrate Mandaza said Sikhala and Sithole are “a threat to public security” and likely to re-offend if released on bail.
The duo was arrested last week on allegations of inciting public violence. This was after the eruption of violence during the funeral wake of slain CCC activist, Moreblessing Ali, which involved CCC and ZANU PF supporters.
