Sikhala Challenges Hearing Of His Case In An Anti-corruption Court

Sikhala Challenges Hearing Of His Case In An Anti-corruption Court

Harare magistrate Ngoni Nduna is set to hand down his judgment on an application by Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) MP Job Sikhala who is challenging the hearing of his case in an anti-corruption court on Monday.

NewZimbabwe.com reports that Sikhala is accused of obstructing the course of justice after he allegedly posted a video to mislead investigating officers handling the murder of CCC’s slain activist, Moreblessing Ali.

Sikhala had challenged the hearing of his case in a regional court, also complaining that the same magistrate had denied him bail before in a different matter as such would be biased. Said his lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa after the court proceedings:

They are entitled to respond and they have responded and their view is that there is absolutely nothing wrong in having the matter at an anti-corruption court because those courts can sit and deal with other matters.

They did not address the issue of why a matter that is proper for a provincial court is in a regional court.

Nduna is expected to deliver his ruling on the application on Monday.

Sikhala was charged at a time he is currently locked up at Chikurubi Maximum Prison on charges of inciting public violence.

My Spider senses are tingling. I have a premonitiry sensation that Wiwa Sikhala will be convicted this time over these truped up charges. The strategy is to eliminate the vocal & fearless CCC Champion from leading citizens bravely before elections. They hope that by convicting Wiwa they will silence and tone down other change champions. Of course there will be appeals but the appeals will be delayed while Wiwa is in indefinate incarceration. They dont realise that they are making a Nelson Mandela out of Wiwa.

I WILL NEVER WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MARAUDING ZANU PF AGAIN.

Most are, commenting as they often do, without fully understanding the gist of the argument.

Deafiting the course of justice is a common law crime which normally is tried in a normal criminal court. But Sikhala's case is poised to be tried in a court designed for particular cases, those dealing with corruption cases.

Through his lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa, Advocate Job Sikhala is is arguing that by transferring his ordinary case to a more particular court, the anti-corruption court the state now implies that that Advocate Job Sikhala commited a corruption case which is not the correct position.

The state this time around want to secure a conviction. Remember that Advocate Job Sikhala has been arrested on 67 times, but he was not found guilty of any crime.

ZANU PF GOVERNMENT WANTS TO STING OPPOSITION MEMBERS BY ELIMINATION ONE BY ONE.

NGAAPINDE HAKE CHAMISA.

[VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE]

Inciting public violence and despondency is a serious crime. Those thugs burnt property and houses but fortunately the long arm of the law caught up with them. All perpetrators should be brought to book as we go for election we want free and fair environment.
