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.
