MDC Alliance vice-chairperson Job Sikhala said he is not afraid of the threats issued by the Defence and War Veterans Affairs Minister Oppah Muchinguri on Tuesday that the government net is closing in on “coup mongers”.
Sikhala, preacher Talent Chiwenga and some media organisations were recently accused by the government of spreading rumours of an imminent coup.
The firebrand Zengeza West MP said the “idiots governing our country should take responsibility for their failures” instead of trying to use other people as scapegoats. Sikhala said in a statement:
Let me set the record straight from the onset, to Oppah Muchinguri, please bring it on.
I am not afraid of the threats because this country can not be governed on the basis of lies and manufacturing of falsehoods against those who are standing against the evils of your government because this country does not belong to anyone’s mother.
I am briefed that the threat by Oppah Muchinguri is targeting at arresting me and (Apostle Talent) Chiwenga as soon as possible.
The brief I received which is quite detailed, says, sooner rather than later after our arrest, journalist (Hopewell) Chin’ono will also be immediately nabbed.
I will not tolerate any persecution on my person anymore. Don’t dare again. Like their threat to come and invade my home on the 29th of February 2020 that turned into a nightmare, I have mobilised the entire population to trigger a revolution in the event of carrying out their threat. I am a practical man.
