The ruling party, Zanu-PF, is set to embark on a massive anti-sanctions drive campaign ahead of the Sadc Day for Solidarity against Sanctions on Zimbabwe slated for October 25.

The development was revealed by the party’s secretary for information and publicity Cde Simon Khaya Moyo at a press briefing on Wednesday.

For over two decades, sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe have caused untold suffering on ordinary citizens.
Cde Khaya Moyo said former liberation movements across the region had commenced activities in their respective countries to lobby for the removal of the illegal embargo.

“His Excellency’s remarks at the Politburo session stated that as per the 39th summit of Sadc Heads of State and Governments resolution which decided that the 25th of October be the anti-sanctions day for Zimbabwe, the party will embark on a build-up campaign towards this apex day,” he said.
“Across the region, FLMs and their governments have earnestly commenced in lobbying for the removal of sanctions.”

At its 39th Heads of State and Government Summit in Tanzania last month, Sadc adopted October 25 as the day of solidarity against the illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe that have been in existence for close to two decades.

Sadc member states are expected to collectively voice their disapproval of the illegal embargo through various activities and platforms until the sanctions are lifted.

    What sanctions? There are a few travel restrictions imposed on a handful of people because of election rigging and human rights abuses, but that is about all. Smith had real sanctions and Rhodesia flourished. (and fought a war)

    Gosh!!!!! Simon Khaya Moyo looks incredibly healthy and well fed in the photo displayed with the news item. Sanctions are possibly not causing him sleepless nights.
    I have attempted to “Google” the sanctions documents in recent times and I found them complex and quite outdated.

    IT WOULD HELP THE LIKES OF MYSELF, IF THE RELEVANT SANCTIONS DETAILS WERE MADE AVAILABLE ON THE “ZIMBABWE SITUATION” SITE. A small section at a time.

    Come on Guys !!!! I, for one, would enjoy reading your innovative presentations, listing the :
    1: The Sanction Detail/Wording.
    2: What Zimbabwean Initiative is directly affected by the details in 1 only.
    3: The end cost to Zimbabwe for the detail and its implementation.
    4: Whom? in your view, is policing the sanctions.
    5: What does “BREXIT” mean to the sanctions?

    PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!

    The West must increase sanctions! How many times have we heard the zanoids telling the West to ‘go to hell’?? The West has just sat back and watched them destroy the rule of law, the economy, the health service, the transport network and infrastructure, the list is endless.

    And now the zanoids complain of sanctions… which are only targeted at a few individuals. Get real.

      Perhaps you should avail yourself of the FACTS regarding sanctions before you make such ludicrous comments. THERE ARE NO ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON ZIMBABWE. The sanctions are limited to travel restrictions on certain members of Government. The very people who are stealing your future. I am so so sorry for you and those like you who just being used .
