By A Correspondent | A senior prison boss, Chief Sup Moses Gukurume on Saturday audibly confirmed to ZimEye, how he participated in allegedly poisoning the jailed legislator Job Sikhala.
This followed leaked communications that suggest Sikhala was recently administered so called, slow poison.
Sikhala was imprisoned following representations he made for his client, the mother of two, Moreblessing Ali, who was killed last year May, in a case the ruling ZANU PF party has been claiming cultural ngozi funeral statements Sikhala made were an incitement to violence.
In a phonecall with ZimEye, Gukurume voiced in confirmation that he ordered the withdrawal of Sikhala’s BP tablets. A leaked memo states this is to quicken alleged poison splattered onto the MP’s food’s effect so that he suffers a stroke or cardiac arrest.
The lengthy leaked communication is revealed by ZimEye in a broadcast on Saturday.
