  1. Quite a critical session…let it not be just a cosmetic engagement that again brushes the oppressed Zimbabweans aside….This Session has to be a Gamechanger of the economic, social, political,, and cultural landscape of Zimbabwe and the reclamation by Zimbabwe of its correct place in the international scene.
