Hon Job Sikhala was today found not guilty and acquitted by Justice Kwenda today on the charges of Obstruction of Justice after spending more than 530 days at Chikurubhi Maximum Prison.
He was initially convicted in May and the appeal took enough of the sentence, which was six months imprisonment. This is a clear manipulation of the judiciary system by ZanuPF politicians to silence opposing voices.
