MDC-T party youths have defied senior party leaders by refusing to take part in the ZANU PF-organised anti-sanctions march to be held tomorrow.
Youth national spokesperson Alfred Dzirutwe said that ZANU PF brought the sanctions on the country and ruling party elites continue to plunder the country’s resources. He is quoted by NewZimbabwe.com as saying:
First and foremost, the sanctions were put in place because of state-sponsored brutality and Zanu PF knows what needs to be done in terms of having the so-called sanctions removed which are issues to do with political reforms and human rights.
As MDC-T youths who are unemployed and face everyday struggles, we cannot be found singing from the same hymn book with those that have mismanaged the economy and continue to plunder the country’s resources for the benefit of cartels in Zanu PF.
MDC-T vice president Obert Gutu told State media on Wednesday that his party will participate in the marches. He further argued that sanctions do not affect ZANU PF elites only but all Zimbabweans.
