MDC’s Ostallos Siziba To Appeal ‘Tight’ Bail Conditions
Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Youth League Secretary-General, Gift Ostallos Siziba who was this afternoon slapped with ‘tight’ bail conditions ahead of the party’s proposed demonstrations next week is has instructed his lawyer to lodge an urgent appeal against the stringent conditions.
Siziba, who appeared at the Rotten Row Magistrates Court this morning for his routine hearing, facing charges of inciting public violence, was slapped with more stringent bail conditions which will also see him surrendering his travelling documents to the clerk of court.
In a statement, MDC Spokesperson, Daniel Molokele said his party feels hard done by the justice system and alleged political interference in the case.
“The MDC is unhappy about the new bail conditions that have been imposed on our Youth Assembly Secretary-General Gift Ostallos Siziba.
“Under the new tight conditions, SG Siziba is now expected to report to the police at least three times a week. His travel documents have also been taken away from him. The MDC suspects that there has been a high level of political interference in his case,” said Molokele.
However, Molokeli made it clear that Siziba has since instructed his lawyers to lodge an appeal urgently.
