Job Sikhala trial postponed

By ZBC Reporter
THE TRIAL of MDC Alliance Vice-Chairperson, Job Sikhala who is facing charges of subverting a constitutionally elected government has been postponed due to the absence of the trial magistrate.
Justice Neville Wamambo postponed the matter to February 3 in the absence of Justice Garainesu Mawadze who is currently attending other official businesses. Sikhala was represented by Jeremiah Bhamu as the State is represented by Tawanda Zvekare.
Allegations against the MDC senior official stemmed from a rally he addressed in Bikita East last year when he said his party would overthrow the government.
“We are a committed leadership that will give Zanu-PF headaches and (Amos) Chibaya was not lying or joking about the war and fight we are going to take to the doorstep of Emmerson Mnangagwa. We are going to overthrow him before 2023, that is not a joke,” he reportedly said.
