Zengeza West MP Honourable Job Sikhala will remain detained at Chikurubi Maximum Prison after Justice Foroma postponed his bail hearing to 26 January.

The hearing has been postponed so as to allow law officers from NPA to file their response to the legislator’s freedom bid.

Honourable Sikhala has been in prison since he was arrested on 13 January and charged with publishing or communicating falsehoods about a baby alleged to be killed by a police officer.
