Harare, April 15, 2014 – Zimbabwean police on Tuesday morning interrogated and released MDC-T’s Job Sikhala over the ‘war against government’ statements he allegedly made at a rally in Kuwadzana over the weekend.
Sikhala’s lawyer, Obert Gutu, who is also an MDC-T official, posted on his Facebook this morning: “I am absolutely glad that my client, Job Wiwa Sikhala was not detained and also that no criminal charges were formally laid against him. However, there was some fairly aggressive interrogation by Chief Superintendent Moyo, Chief Supt. Ngirishi , Supt. Murenje, Detective Inspector Mirimbo and Detective Inspector Murira.”
“My client explained the context and meaning of his address at the MDC rally in Kuwadzana last Sunday. The long and short of it is that my client didn’t breach any of the country’s laws.”
It is alleged, that Sikhala urged MDC-T supporters to prepare for ‘war’ against government.
Sikhala had written on his Facebook wall this morning” “(I) have agreed with my lawyer Obert Chaurura Gutu, to surrender myself to the Law and Order Section of the ZRP today at 10 o’clock this morning.”
