Zimbabwe President To Address Anti-Sanctions Rally

HARARE, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, is expected to address party supporters, set to gather in Harare for an anti-sanctions solidarity march, this Thursday (Sept 5).

The Herald newspaper reported that the march is in support of Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states, who are calling for the removal of sanctions imposed on the country, by the United States and the European Union in the early 2000’s.

The government contends that the sanctions have had a negative impact on the economy and brought suffering to the population.

ZANU-PF Secretary for Administration, Obert Mpofu, said, the solidarity march was being organised by the ruling ZANU-PF.

He said, all progressive Zimbabweans should overcome their political affiliations and take part in the march.

We want to make it a national event. The solidarity march will include the government, civil society, students, the business community and all political parties, among others.

The event is open to everyone, said Mpofu.

The solidarity march comes, after SADC countries declared Oct 25, as a solidarity day against illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe, and resolved to conduct various activities in their respective countries on the day, to resoundingly call for the immediate removal of the sanctions.
