CCC Responds To Chin’ono’s Claims That Sikhala Was Betrayed By “Those Close To Him”

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has dismissed Hopewell Chin’ono’s claims that jailed legislator Job Sikhala has been betrayed by those close to him.

Chin’ono, an award-winning journalist, had posted on Twitter suggesting that Sikhala who has been in jail since June 2022 had been forsaken by his party. He tweeted:

One day we will talk about why this warrior is still in jail, and how those close to him betrayed him and go around speaking ill of him, pretending to be with him.

How some were bought, maybe he should tell his own story, but the story will be told. There is always a right time!

Some members of the CCC say Chin’ono’s assertion that Sikhala, whom he shared with cells at Chikurubi Maximum Prison in 2021, was betrayed by those close to him is “not too far-fetched.” They say more could have been done in a bid to secure his release.

However, the party’s Deputy Spokesperson Gift Ostallos Siziba dismissed rumours of disunity saying they were fully behind Sikhala. He responded to Chin’ono’s remarks:

Kupi ko?

We are united together in the fight to win Zimbabwe for Change. Job is being failed by a captured judiciary.

He will come home, nothing lasts forever. We have been in prison before (l for one stayed in Chikurubi for more than 60 days without trial) and we know that as long as Zanu PF exists we are jail candidates.

The Zengeza West legislator was arrested and jailed allegedly for inciting the 14 June 2022 violence which erupted in Nyatsime during the funeral wake of slain CCC activist, Moreblessing Ali.

He has been jailed at Chikurubi Maximum Prison, without trial.

  1. Job Sikhala is staying where is until after the elections are concluded. The opposition is too weak in their approach when dealing with extreme situations like this…how do you expect to win the war for change in zim when you can’t prove your might in this battle to rescue your comrade from jail.

    1. We are no fools Skala is no new to incarceration. The very people jailed him must release him it’s better to loose one comrade than to have many of us jailed . We are aware of whats needed behind him jailed. We had lawyers attending to him every court appearance so what more can we do. He is in prison and with the authority so what more you want us to do. Can we steal him away Can we break the jail.
