Sikhala and Sithole Granted Suspended Sentence

Former Zengeza West MP Job Sikhala who was facing trumped up charges of inciting violence and obstruction of justice has been granted a 2-year suspended sentence.


Job Sikhala who was in illegal detention for 595 days since winter of 2022 will get his freedom.

Job Sikhala and his co-accused Godfrey Sithole were facing charges of incitement to violence following the violent murder of CCC activist Moreblessing Ali in Chitungwiza in 2022.

While the CCC argued that the murder was politically motivated, the state tried to save face by presenting the case as a crime of passion.

The two legislators attended Moreblessing Ali's funeral wake where Job Sikhala addressed the gathering.

It is a video snippet from Sikhala’s address that was used as primary evidence against the two.

The Ali family then engaged Sikhala as their lawyer.

Washington said in an earlier interview, that the family agreed they would only bury Moreblessing after the release of incarcerated CCC deputy chairperson Job Sikhala who has been unlawfully detained at Chikurubi Maximum prison following utterances which the State argued were inflammatory.

We instructed him to announce those words he is being incarcerated for,” said Washington.

In getting offended by a mythical statement that is 6,000 years old, can the State and anyone else out there tell us the motivation for arresting the family’s spokesperson like this if it is not what it is; deep guilt.”

The Ali home in Nyatsime was turned into a war-zone, when ruling Zanu PF youths besieged her funeral wake and demanded that all opposition supporters vacate it.

Running battles ensured, with the area remaining impassable for days. Her family has since moved from the home to a safer place for fear of victimisation.
