Job Sikhala, who has been convicted of obstructing the course of justice in Nyatsime last year, has this afternoon been fined US$600 by Harare Regional Magistrate Mrs Marehwanazvo Gofa. Sikhala, who is a member of the Citizens Coalition For Change (CCC), was found guilty of obstructing the course of justice in a case that involved one of his party members.

The US$600 fine is to be paid by May 5, and failure to pay will result in him serving six months in prison. In addition, six months were wholly suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar crime in the next five years.

However, he remains in custody as he has three other pending cases before the courts. Sikhala’s party, the CCC, has not yet released a statement regarding the verdict.
