CITIZENS Coalition for Change (CCC) lawmakers Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole have reportedly been picked up from Chikurubi Maximum Prison by unknown people driving an unmarked vehicle.

According to Hopewell Chin’ono, a filmmaker and government critic, suspicions are that the two have been taken to Harare central police station to face new charges.

“Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole have been picked up from Chikurubi Prison by a car without number plates according to their families. Their lawyer Jeremiah Bamu confirmed hearing the news and said he is on his way to Harare central police station. He suspects there are new charges,” said Chin’ono.

The duo is being accused of inciting public violence to avenge the death of CCC party activist Moreblessing Ali.

They were recently denied bail by both the magistrate and High Court.

Sikhala and Sithole were arrested on June 14 and have been in custody since then.
