Zanu-PF national secretary for Youth Affairs Pupurai Togarepi who was recently elected as the legislator for Gutu South has said that he will introduce a law which will punish all those who call for sanctions against Zimbabwe. This comes after United States President Donal Trump signed the Zidera Amendment into law. Speaking to Daily News, Togarepi said,
This Parliament will pass the Patriotic Act. Anyone who calls for economic sanctions to be hanged and their political parties banned. It is going to be my first contribution in Parliament so that it will come to fruition.
We know that Tendai Biti went to America to call for sanctions. It’s not good that you want to be a leader but you are calling for sanctions. You are a Zimbabwean. You want Zimbabwean people to suffer. This is not good. People who are calling for sanctions must not look for higher offices in Zimbabwe. Why don’t we go to Parliament so that we prohibit all those who are calling for sanctions? Zimbabweans are suffering because of these people, we want to stop this.
