CCC MPs, Sikhala And Sithole Denied Bail

CCC MPs, Sikhala And Sithole Denied Bail

High Court judge Justice Lucy Mungwari has dismissed CCC legislators, Job Sikhaka and Godfrey Sithole’s bail appeals.

In her ruling, this Thursday, Justice Mungwari said Sikhala, in particular, has a heightened propensity to re-offend even though the Zengeza West MP has been arrested a record 67 times on politically-motivated charges without conviction.

Sikhala and Sithole had approached the higher court appealing against a magistrate’s decision not to grant them bail pending trial, two weeks ago.

They unsuccessfully applied for bail before the Harare magistrates’ courts.

The magistrate ruled that the two MPs were a threat to public security and were likely to re-offend if released on bail.

Sikhala and Sithole are facing charges of incitement to commit violence in Nyatsime following the murder of CCC activist Moreblessing Ali.

Ali’s dismembered remains were discovered in a disused well at a farm in Beatrice, about 10km away from where she was taken.

The prime suspect in her murder, Pius Mukandi, alias Jamba (31), has since been arrested and was remanded in custody.

The judiciary is captured !! ! They have done similar judgements on bail applications by Sikhala before but I know the guys will keep applying at the courts until they are released. Nothing is final and cast in stone when a court denies an applicant bail. Appeals are made to higher courts. We are being ruled by an evil government capturing the army, the judiciary, the press etc. but this will come to an end come 2023 when we vote for true leadership.

We may not be with you in flesh, but
We are with you in spirit.

You may be incarcerated in Chikurubi, but also remember that many (if not most) Zimbabweans are incarcerated at large in Zimbabwe. Sikhala and Sithole, we are in prison with you. But Freedom will come,
Freedom is certain!

Sikhala is a lost cause. Hatichamudi.He spends his time either hiding muma ceilings or in remand prison over silly crimes.

"Never argue with an idīot. They bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience"

@VYBZ that's always my response to you. Mind you, one man's terrorist is another man's Freedom Fighter. Who is to determine "the wrong cause"? For me Wiwa's cause may be the right cause for many, not excluding the THOUSANDS that voted for him into Parliament.

If you care, tell us where and how Wiwa's cause has become WRONG.

@VYBZE KETTLE. The likes of Jonathan Moyo, Kasukuwere & Zhuwawo used to utter such crap in defense of oppression. Many deceased army generals used to defend the same kind of injustice. Mugabe, the godfather political thuggery would froth at the mouth while attacking the opposition. Where are they today? "All things die. The old order changeth, paving way for the new." Said Alfred Lord Tennyson in one of his Poems. Wiwa is the seed from whence the tree of revolution will sprout.

Life is what you make it my dear brother. He chose to be a martya for the wrong cause now he has made his bed let him lie in it.

To many of us he is a hero. Wiwa is fighting for the emancipation of the suffering peasantry & proletariat. He is in the dungeons for the masses and as endures the brutality of the Zanu Pf regime more and more people empathize and sympathize with the opposition. When we went to the liberation struggle Smith and his gestapo fascist gvt behaved exactly in the same manner. As we approached 1978 the Rhodesian Front became even more cruel. They tortured,killed and imprisoned. Smith born in Selukwe is now History. On April 18, 1980 the 1000 yrs shrunk into oblivion. Job may die in prison but one day ediots like VYBZ will know and read of the post independence corrupt & sadist zany regime. Go they will including their cult of brainwashed scarf adorned VYBZ. Keep this response from me for your posterity. If Zanu does not go,the bigots Nazi leadership within it will.
