Job Sikhala, the MDC vice-chairperson, says he will continue fighting for Zimbabweans’ freedom from oppressive ZANU PF rule after allegations that he wanted to topple President Emmerson Mnangagwa were dismissed.
Sikhala made the remarks while speaking to the Daily News on Sunday reporter Blessings Mashaya. Asked about his plans following his acquittal of treason charges by Masvingo High Court judge, Justice Garainesu Mawadze, recently, Sikhala responded:
I will continue prosecuting the people’s struggle. The period we are in now does not need individualism. It needs selflessness to the cause of our country.
Our country is transparently under the armpit of a holocaust tyranny.
This tyranny cannot continue to preside over the State of affairs through coercion and bloodshed. This has to come to an end.
And how will it come to an end? I challenge all Zimbabweans to join us in a fight for our freedom.
This is a struggle that no longer calls the MDC alone. It’s now a national project.
The democratic project belongs to all Zimbabweans would they be in villages, schools, universities, military barracks, police camps, prisons, townships, factories, whether you are Zanu PF, MDC, NCA, NDU, or whatever political party, Emmerson Mnangagwa has become the enemy of all of us.
The way he has privatised Zimbabwe cannot be tolerated by a civilised society. The methods of running a State through bloodbath are intolerable and cannot continue any further.
I urge all the people of Zimbabwe to rally behind the clarion call to our freedom.
All this will be demonstrated by the power the people hold…
