The seemingly unrepentant MDC vice chairperson Job Sikhala has once again fired another salvo at the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s presidency in move that is likely to further mount his legal woes.
The firebrand politician who rose to fame through student activism, is out on bail after Masvingo magistrate Justice Neville Wamambo ordered him to pay ZWL5000 bail and stay at his given address among other conditions.
He was answering to charges of treason that stemmed from a rally he addressed in Bikita East when he said his party would overthrow the Government.
As part of his bail conditions, he was not barred from addressing political rallies but his statement over the weekend at a rally in Hopley was tantamount to undermining the authority of a constitutionally elected government and Head of State.
“President Mnangagwa got into the office through the November 2017 Coup and I am going to be the President”
“He wants to kill us and I will never stop,” said Sikhala in a video clip that has gone viral.
Some circles have described Sikhala’s behaviour and has described him as ‘childish’ and not matured beyond student activism.
