The Ministry of Information has claimed that MDC national Vice Chairperson, Job Sikhala, is not missing. The ministry says that Sikhala is being transported to Bikita, Masvingo where the alleged crime was committed.
Posting on Twitter, the Ministry said:
We have noted Media Reports alleging that Hon Sikhala is missing. Those reports are inaccurate. The courts have directed that his case should be tried in Bikita. Hon Sikhala is being transported by the police to Bikita where the alleged crime was committed
Sikhala was arrested and charged with subversion of a constitutionally established government after he told MDC supporters in Bikita over the weekend that his party was planning to overthrow the government of president Mnangagwa before 2023.
The announcement comes after MDC leader Nelson Chamisa claimed that he had received intel suggesting that Sikhala was missing. Sikhala was scheduled to appear in court today at Rowan Martin.
