Sibanda, whose application for referral of his case to the Supreme Court is yet to be heard in the higher court, is facing allegations of insulting President Robert Mugabe.

He was charged under Section 33 (2) (b) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.

Sibanda, who was granted $400 bail and ordered not to march to any State institutions as part of the bail conditions, is being represented by Harare lawyer and former Attorney-General Sobusa Gula-Ndebele.

The former war veterans leader allegedly claimed that Mugabe and First Lady Grace were hatching a “bedroom” or “boardroom” coup through which they wanted to remove fired ex-Vice-President Joice Mujuru from her position.

Allegations against Sibanda are that on October 27 2014 at Herbert Mine in Mutasa, Manicaland province, he addressed an illegal gathering of war veterans who had come to witness the reburial of liberation war fighters’ bodies exhumed from the mine shaft.

Sibanda allegedly addressed the gathering at which he is said to have claimed Mugabe wanted to use the alleged coup to remove Mujuru from her positions in government and Zanu PF and replace her with his wife Grace.

It was further alleged that Sibanda said he was not prepared for that because “power was not sexually transmitted”.

  2. Thanks for sharing. We have a lot of depression and anxiety in our family. As a church, I think it’s important to mention those things to help others know it’s ok. It’s helpful to go to counseling and anyone can suffer with depression sometimes. Thanks for your honesty and sharing.

    When you dine with the devil , you need a long spoon and when you make a devil , it shall surely consume you one day . Jabulani lacked this advise , hence his current mis-demeanor . Jubulani told Bob the truth and unfortunately he had forgotten that Bob is an enemy of the truth and that word does not exist in his vocab .But the reality is , Bob`s days are surely fast approaching . History has it on record that all Dictators were crashed and is no exception .
