Trial of CCC Deputy Chairman Job Sikhala Deferred to January 2023 (News Central TV)

The incitement charge against Zimbabwean Opposition lawmaker Job Sikhala has been upheld by a court in Harare, Zimbabwe.

The ruling clears the way for Sikhala’s trial in the months leading up to the country’s general elections later this year.

Sikhala, who has been in custody since June, was charged with inciting riots following the murder of Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) member Moreblessing Ali.

The magistrate presiding over the case stated that there was “overwhelming” evidence against Sikhala. His lawyer has indicated that they will file an urgent appeal against the decision.

If found guilty, he will be unable to participate in the upcoming elections, which are expected to take place in early August.
