Ziyambi Denies Govt Interference In Sikhala, Mubaiwa Court Cases

Ziyambi Denies Govt Interference In Sikhala, Mubaiwa Court Cases

Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Ziyambi Ziyambi, has denied allegations that either government or ZANU PF is meddling in court processes involving Job Sikhala and Marry Mubaiwa.

Sikhala is a prominent and vocal opposition MP who has been denied bail several times by the courts on charges of inciting violence and obstruction of justice while Mubaiwa is the ex-wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Sikhala has been languishing in remand prison for more than 80 days following his arrest in the aftermath of the murder of CCC activist Moreblessing Ali by suspects linked to ZANU PF.

Mubaiwa is facing charges relating to an attempted murder of the VP, money laundering and assault and in spite of her apparent ill-health, she has been dragged to court several times.

Ziyambi denied any knowledge of charges against Sikhala and Mubaiwa, saying he has no interest in following the cases. He said:

I don’t even know his (Sikhala) case, or what is happening there and I am completely sincere. I don’t know what is happening in court.

I don’t even know honestly. I have never followed anything. I don’t know. I have never had an interest in following it.

We never discuss these things. During my entire time in government, we have never discussed these things before the courts.

So, I don’t know where they are discussed or if ever there is any discussion on those things.

I don’t know. I am not even briefed as a minister when they take those dockets to court.

If anything, I would be charged with criminal abuse of office.

Observers argue that the courts are captured by ZANU PF citing the apparent differential treatment between people linked to ZANU PF and those considered critical of the government. | ZimLive

Minister of Justice is saying he have nothing to do with Sikala and CCC activists arrest . ( If he was involved he cld be charged with criminal abuse of office .) .The minister is talking like a Democratic somebody . I am saying it's too late fr justification. The more yu oppress someone fr justice e more he become a darling to many . Even if Chamisa is to say Wiwa take over I bank my vote on him ,not me alone but e general Masses.

I think mathematics or statistics should be made compulsory for those taking up law. If someone is acquitted 15 times without being found guilty, what are the chances off the person being found guilty at the 16th, 17th, 30th, 60th and 100th accusal? Should people still focus on the accused or on the system?

The regime is not interested in securing a conviction its interested in breaking Wiwa's spirit and humiliating him. Its cynical and cruel and the dictator loves this.

Ziyambi Ziyambi must not believe that if he is **** all other people are **** too. No !!!!!! He is in that ****ity stupor alone.

Job Sikhala and 15 others' case is manifestly clear that ZANU PF Politicians are driving the courts. There is a clear difference in the handling of cases committed by ZANU PF Politicians and CCC Politicians. A case which comes to mind is that one of Major Justice Wadyajena who spent just 2 days in Police cells before he was granted cheap bail for stealing a staggering 5.8 million usd from COTTCO Zimbabwe.

This is ****ity at play in the Honourable Minister of Home Affairs, Ziyambi Ziyambi. ZANU PF is now using their Chief Justice to manipulate the courts.

[ CCC POLITICAL PARTY IS FOR THE COUNTRY, FOR THE PEOPLE, FOR THE LAW ].

[ VOTE FOR ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA FOR REAL CHANGE ].

Yours sincerely
William Sonboy CHINEMBIRI
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ].

He's right not to know. The Executive and the Judiciary must be separate. That means we must investigate the courts. He's actually pointing everyone in the correct direction to investigate.
However, who will investigate the Judiciary when they are the referees? Who will Police the Police? Who will Prefect the Prefects when there's no trust, buy in from our nationals when ever an enquiry is instituted?

This is an angle the ruling party (my party) and any serious party must interrogate wisely. It's a present and future reality that confidence in public institutions must be beyond reproach.

I thank you
