Wiwa faces the guillotine for threatening to overthrow the Zim Govt

    Nelson Chamisa’s embattled lieutenant, Job Wiwa Sikhala faces a death penalty or atleast 20 years behind bars for threatening to overthrow President Mnangagwa and his government.

    The MDC legislator was charged this morning by the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) for treason.

    Job Sikhala is not new to controversy. Earlier this year, he called President Mnangagwa “The Father of Satan” in an interview he had with Daily Newspaper.

    On Sunday, the MP threatened to torpedo President Mnangagwa before 2023. He accused him and his government of causing a bout of skyrocketing prices.

    On Monday, after Govt issued a statement on Sikhala’s remarks, saying it will not allow such utterances to go unpunished, Sikhala’s party, MDC- A distanced itself from him and his utterances, a move that sparked a heated debate among its supporters, many standing with the embattled lawyer and MP for Zengeza West.

    The party, through a statement issued by its Deputy National Spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka said Job Sikhala’s threats to the Govt of Zimbabwe and to President Mnangagwa in particular were his own opinions that the MDC party did not share with him.

    Job is expected to appear in court soon.
