Spokesperson of the National Patriotic Front (NPF), Jealousy Mawarire, said that the anti-sanctions march will not change anything as long as the ZANU PF-led government continues to violate the constitution.
Speaking to NewsDay ahead of the anti-sanctions march to be conducted on 25 October this year, Mawarire said:
For sanctions to go, the government has to respect the Constitution. They have to stop abducting their own people and allow freedom of expression, freedom to demonstrate and to stop this rule by the gun. The marches will not help change anything.
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) has thrown its weight behind the government of Zimbabwe for the Anti-sanctions march.
However, political commentators have argued that the sanctions will not be revoked since the people targeted have continued to violate citizens’ fundamental human rights with impunity.
