Job Sikhala Speaks On His Whereabouts
MDC Alliance party national vice-chairperson Job Sikhala has spoken on enquiries regarding his whereabouts.
He does not disclose where he is but advises people that God is in charge.
Last month, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) said they were looking for Sikhala together with other 13 political activists, including Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) president Obert Masaraure for interviews.
The notice by the police followed a crackdown aimed at arresting organisers of the 31 July anti-corruption protests in Zimbabwe.
Savanna News publishes the full statement by Sikhala regarding concerns of his whereabouts:
Enquiries are being made about my whereabouts and safety by concerned people of good faith, embassies, friends and relatives. I want to just advise everyone that God is in Charge. In him I trust.
My present situation is exactly the society that Zimbabwe has become, where citizens live like animals, hunted and abused by the very same people who should be protecting citizens and their rights. This is the society that Eddison Zvobgo rejected. It is the society that Joshua Nkomo, Alfred Nikita Mangena. Nelson Mandela and it is the unacceptable society rejected by the luminary cohort of Africa’s founding nationalists and revolutionaries.
The 31st July Movement is a Convergence Initiative of Citizens on critical and urgent issues of national concern affecting the lives and livelihoods of ordinary Zimbabweans. The 31st July Movement has broad based constituencies of all citizens, across the political divide, including those in ZANU PF who are not happy with the deplorable state of affairs pervading our country. It is wrong and crass for anyone to associate my position in the MDC ALLIANCE with my role in this all-inclusive and broad based movement of citizens. I am not playing my role on the instructions of my party position but the role allocated to me by the stakeholders driving the 31st July Movement.
Therefore when I speak, I am speaking on behalf of the broad citizens not on behalf of any political party. This is because citizen interests cut across the political divide. That is the objective of the 31st July Movement: to unite all our citizens. Zimbabwe needs unity today beyond political colour than at any given time.
