“Anti-Sanctions Day Shall Be Declared An Official Public Holiday,” – ZIM Govt

The acting Information Minister, Professor Amon Murwira on Monday told a post-cabinet media briefing that the government shall make the anti-sanctions day, 5 October an official public holiday.

The government has already lined up a number of activities including a football match between Highlanders and Dynamos and a music gala as well as an anti-sanctions march in the capital, Harare and at Provincial and District levels across the country. Speaking to reporters, Murwira said:

To further amplify the importance of this day to the economic emancipation and well-being of Zimbabwe, Friday 25 October 2019 shall be declared an official public holiday.

The development comes after SADC countries passed a resolution to declare 25 October a day against-sanctions imposed by the West on Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, some local analysts have criticised the event saying that it was time and money-wasting as sanctions will, according to Western states who imposed them, only be removed if Zimbabwe upholds human rights which it is alleged to be currently violating.

  1. Zanu yawora

    And we can’t even March against Zanu misrule, Zanu corruption, Zanu mismanagement of our resources

    Zanu brought sanctions upon zimbabwe

    Why did government encourage destruction of private property during the land grabbing and not the purpoted land reform?

    Who owns land in Zimbabwe? It’s mainly Zanu big fish and their followers

    So which comprehensive and all inclusive land reform ever took place here in Zimbabwe?
