HARARE – MDC Alliance Vice Chairperson, Job Sikhala is appearing in court today to challenge the legality of his arrest that happened last Friday, 21 August 2020.
Sikhala is an outspoken critic of the government and is the Spokesperson of the 31st July Movement.
He had been in hiding after he was put on the ZRP wanted list on allegations of inciting public violence.
Sikhala joins the growing list of government critics facing outrageous charges of incitement of public violence which includes Hopewell Chin’ono and Jacob Ngarivhume.
The state has been on a massive clamp down on critical voices since they used the state security to thwart the 31 July planned peaceful demonstration against corruption.
