Defiant opposition MDC vice national chairperson Job Sikhala, who is facing charges of advocating for the overthrow of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, has called on Zimbabweans to invade the streets of Harare in anti-government demonstrations.

Addressing party supporters in Harare South constituency's high density suburb of Hopley last Sunday, Sikhala bemoaned the fact that the majority of the country's youths were highly educated yet they were jobless just like their uneducated peers.

The MDC deputy chairperson and Zengeza West legislator, Job Sikhala, who is out on $5,000 bail is facing a subversion charge,.

Sikhala was arrested last Tuesday in Harare, following utterances he made at a rally ahead of the just ended Bikita by-election, where he allegedly said: "We will overthrow President [Emmerson] Mnangagwa before 2023."

His trial will commence on July 24 at Bikita Magistrates' Court.
