MDC Alliance Vice Chairman Job Sikhala says that prison authorities at Harare Prison on Wednesday denied him access to visit incarcerated fellow MDC Alliance activist Terrence Manjengwa.

Manjengwa was arrested in August after conducting a protest demanding the release of Sikhala,.

The activist has spent over two months jail without trial, matching a 20 year pre-trial record by PF ZAPU leaders who were arrested by former President Robert Mugabe’s regime during the Gukurahundi era in the 80s.

He is currently detained at Harare Remand Prison after being charged with criminal nuisance. He was denied bail by the magistrates court and is waiting for bail ruling at the High Court.

According to Sikhala, the prison authorities classified Manjengwa as a dangerous prisoner who would not be allowed visitors.
