Job Sikhala, Epistle
We would like to thank you all dear Zimbabweans for the demonstration of love, care and unbridled concern for the pain we are going through.
We feel your love even when we are under incarceration here at Chikurubi Maximum Prison.
We are pleased that besides members of our own political party CCC, all Zimbabweans of different political, social and ideological persuasion are standing with us.
Although I am going through difficult moments at present with the escalated persecution of my own and my other colleagues here in prison with me, be grateful beloved compatriots that we are all in high spirits.
I went through an unexplainable illness, I am on the road to recovery, please pray for us.
Standing for the weak and downtrodden in society as I did for Moreblessing Ali and many others is my God’s is calling.
My reward is in heaven, I do it selflessly, and sometimes I end up asking myself why my conscience is always triggered to stand for the predicament of other people.
I was just born like that by my mother and father.
I feel emotionally hurt to witness the weak in our society being abused, brutalised and bullied without recourse.
I have got no regrets whatsoever with the role I played together with many other Zimbabweans to obtain justice for Moreblessing Ali after she was murdered.
It is a role that I am prepared to be imprisoned for because I was doing my work as a lawyer and Member of Parliament, a community leader.
Generations to come will remember many others and myself for having been jailed for standing up for a defenceless and poor woman who was brutally murdered by political thugs.
God has taught us to stand for the weak widows and orphans in our societies.
Our desire as Zimbabweans is to have a State where security for all persons is guaranteed in a free and democratic country.
Warm greetings to you all from dear brothers who are with me here in prison, Godfrey Sithole, Precious Jeche, Misheck Guzha and Odinga.
They are all in good spirits and are missing you all.
Finally, we are asking for a small favour from you dear compatriots;
May you please kindly make Sunday the 17th of July 2022 a National Day of prayer for all of us who are jailed without trial for seeking justice for Moreblesing Ali.
Yours compatriot under incarceration at Chikurubi Maximum Prison,
Job Wiwa Sikhala
Member of Parliament for Zengeza West.
