"He's Innocent" - Mahere Speaks As Job Sikhala Is Denied Bail Again

Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) national spokesperson, Fadzayi Mahere has condemned the continued detention of Zengeza est Member of Parliament (MP), Job Sikhala saying he is innocent.

Mahere made the remarks the Harare Magistrates’ court denied Sikhala bail again this Friday. In a Twitter post seen by Pindula News, Mahere said:

The Magistrates’ Court at Rotten Row has again denied Hon @JobSikhala1 bail. We condemn this continued persecution & the weaponization of the law. Bail is a constitutional right. He is innocent. 

Sikhala has been in prison since June when he was arrested and charged with inciting public violence which erupted in Nyatsime during the funeral wake of slain CCC activist Moreblessing Ali.

Sikhala denies the charges.

Responding to the court outcome today, former Finance and Economic Development minister, Tendai Biti said:

We are shocked by continued denial of bail to @JobSikhala1. The State is clearly not ready. That alone constituted a fundamental change of circumstances. The law must at all material protect itself against capture. It must remain autonomous & free from the illusion that it is owned.

His remarks resonate with sentiments expressed by several analysts who believe the judiciary is captured by the executive.

They believe Sikhala’s prolonged detention is political.

Fadzie is offside again. How can someone who incite public violence and despondency be innocent. Uyo unofanira kutotanga aripa dzimba dzose dzakapiswa. Very reckless and unpatriotic.

These are only allegations @Mujibha He hasn't been tried yet d-u-m-m-y You are not even aware of most basic rule of law which goes 'innocent until proven guilty' They are not even putting him on trial because they know that he is innocent It is unprecedented that munhu can be kept in remand prison for so long This regime has got no shame at all

I believe words or even statements like "pasi na....." , "mhandu", "muvenge", "mutengesi",etc should be vabolished from Zim politics as they incite violence.ln politics we are not suppose to be enemies but opponents...we need too tone down on the usage of any words or statements that promote political violence.There are some people who are still in the "war mode" Hondo yakapera kudhara ,why always creating enemies always .WE ARE NOT ENEMIES BY WE JUST HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS!NOT AN OPPOSITION BUT AN ALTERNATIVE!!!!


Baba Denzel 3 weeks ago

Guys if Honorable Sikhala is guilty,why the court of law is not giving him a chance for trial ???Why are they keeping on postponing the trial??? A desending voice is captured as inciting violence in Zimbabwe why??? Through my own Political point of view those on top are just fighting the entire system .The rule of law had been totally breached by so called we know it all and we are the bosses moreover nothing you can say as long as we are the forefront.

Hanzi "Pasi nemhandu" haisi incitement of violence here iyoyi??? That phrase itself alone leaves a lot to be desired
