Job Sikhala’s Treason Trial Postponed

The trial of MDC vice-chairperson Job Sikhala was on Monday morning postponed to February 3 by the Masvingo High Court.

Justice Neville Wamambo postponed the trial to next week with the consent of both the state and the defence counsels, prosecutor Tawanda Zvekare and Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights’s Jeremiah Bhamu, respectively.

Sikhala’s trial was postponed because the case’s trial presiding judge, Justice Garainesu Mawadze is away on official business.

The vocal MDC official is facing subversion charges following remarks that he made at a rally in Bikita in July last year.

Sikhala reportedly told the party’s supporters that President Emmerson Mnangagwa will be overthrown before he finishes his 5-year-term in 2023.
