Job Sikhala’s application for recusal granted

Harare magistrate, Ngoni Nduna, has excused himself from presiding over Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) legislator, Job Sikhala’s case.

Sikhala through his lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa, had filed an application for recusal arguing that, the matter was not fit to be heard by a regional magistrate or before an Anti-Corruption court.

Magistrate Nduna said that the circumstance of this case demands that it appears before another court.

He also said it will be breach of the Constitution to put Sikhala at a desperate situation where he will see no reason for fighting out with full effort against the State.

Sikhala’s lawyer Mthethwa said she is happy with the magistrate’s decision to give in to the recusal application.
