CCC MPs Sikhala And Sithole Further Detained As State Requests Case Postponement

CCC MPs Sikhala And Sithole Further Detained As State Requests Case Postponement

Two opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) lawmakers, Job Sikhala and Godfrey Karakadzai Sithole will spend two more nights in jail after their bail appeal was delayed Tuesday at the State’s instance.

Prosecutors asked for a postponement stating that they were yet to file their response to the application.

The appeal will now be heard this Thursday. 

In an update on the case, CCC deputy spokesperson, Gift Ostallos Siziba said:

Hon Job Sikhala and Sithole’s bail hearing has been postponed to Thursday at 9 am at the High court. The state failed to file its papers thus the hearing could not proceed.

The duo made the first attempt to have the appeal heard last week but the presiding judge Munamato Mutevedzi demanded a transcribed record of proceedings from the magistrate’s court.

The judge struck the matter off the roll before the two filed a fresh application.

Sikhala and Sithole were arrested on June 14 on allegations of inciting public violence during the memorial service for the slain CCC activist Moreblessing Ali. They deny the charges.

Ali was reportedly kidnapped on 24 May and her mutilated body was found dumped in a disused well on 11 June.

A ZANU PF activist Pius Mukandi alias Jamba has since been arrested over the murder.

CCC political party supporters will live with these scenes of watching their leaders shackled in leg irons in order to embarrass them.

I will always say it that investigations into Nyatsime disturbances were mismanaged until a Member of Parliament and a Councillor, both ZANU PF officials, who triggered the heinous disturbances are arrested. It is crystal clear that these seemingly untouchables caused the disturbances by turning away Moreblessing Ali's funeral attendees.

There have been a number of arrests from CCC Party side without anyone having been arrested from the ruling party, ZANU PF, although it is understood that some properties belonging to CCC officials were torched too in the disturbances. Does it mean that there is no crime in reprisals Question mark nga.
