Ironically, Siziba, also a Member of Parliament for Pelandaba Tshabalala, was briefly detained on Wednesday, released, and later summoned to appear in court tomorrow on a charge of inciting violence at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Sunday. for allegedly inciting violence, released, he was summoned to court on Friday.

The CCC has claimed that the series of arrests that has seen over 10 of its members taken into custody this week, is a ploy by the ruling Zanu PF to reduce the opposition party’s representation in Parliament and local authorities.
