Advocate Fadzayi Mahere's Legal Perspective On Sikhala's Remarks
MDC secretary for Education, advocate Fadzayi Mahere, has said that Job Sikhala’s are not clear and could have meant anything. Mahere said that it is not a crime for one to state that they want to overthrow the government. Posting on Twitter, Mahere said:
1. Merely stating that you’ll overthrow the Govt isn’t a crime. You have to organize/urge/set up an organization with a view that that group will overthrow the Govt.
2. The overthrow has to be unconstitutional. Sikhala could have meant impeachment. #FreeJobSikhala
Meanwhile, some are saying that although Skhala could have meant impeachment, he was understood by both his party and the ruling Zanu PF to mean a coup d’tat!
Others are arguing that there is no constitutional government in Zimbabwe to speak of.
