Job Sikhala Ruling Delayed

ANOTHER SIKHALA APPLICATION DISMISSED

A Harare regional Magistrate, Marehwanazvo Gofa delayed her ruling on the case of opposition lawmaker Job Sikhala of obstruction of justice charges today and deferred it to May 3 2023.

The magistrate advised the defense counsel that she only received Sikhala’s submissions this morning as she was absent.

The Zengeza West MP is accused of posting on social media a video relating to the murder of Ms Moreblessing Ali and violence that rocked in Nyatsime sometime last year.

Wiwa as he is affectionately known, is being charged with obstruction or defeating the course of justice.

The state says the videos were aimed at scuppering police investigations into the killing of Ms Ali and the violence that broke up in Nyatsime.

However, Job Sikhala’s lawyers, Mr Harrison Nkomo and Mr Jeremiah Bhamu argued that the video in which the State is basing its allegations was edited since the State did not produce the original video or the person who filmed it.

The defense counsel brought a video expert, Olaf Koschke who testified before the court that the videos uploaded on the internet could have been edited before being published.

Its now close to a year since the combative legislator has been in remand. His family has been relying on hand-outs from well-wishers.
