Prominent journalist Hopewell Chinono slammed prison officers for putting leg irons on Job Sikhala.

Addressing the press while leaving the courts, Chinono said its not proper to put leg irons on Sikhala especially when the magistrate said the act is inhumane.

He added that Sikhala is not a criminal hence he should not be treated like that.

Sikhala said the entire government system is congested with idiots.

Meanwhile judge David Foroma has reserved Chinono ‘s judgment on bail application.

Chin’ono and Sikhala were arrested on charges of communicating falsehoods prejudicial to the state, even though the country’s highest court has expunged the section of the law he is accused of violating.
