""Summary: This petition is by the Zimbabweans Citizens in the Diaspora pleading with the international community to stop the Zimbabwe government from systematically conducting gross violations of human rights against members of the opposition party and in this particular case Job Sikhala. Job Sikhala is a Member of Parliament, Vice Chairperson of the opposition party Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) in Zimbabwe, a lawyer and a family man who has been unlawfully incarcerated in Chikurubi maximum prison for the past nine months without trial.""
""This is gross violation of a citizen’s human rights perpetrated by the government because of his choice to affiliate with a political party of his choice and conducting his professional duties of representing victims of political violence. This action by the government of Zimbabwe constitutes violation of the Zimbabwean Constitution and the International Convention on Human Rights, therefore we petition the British government to find ways to stop this kind of brutality by a government upon its own citizens.""
