Advocate Nelson Chamisa, the leader of the opposition MDC has said that Zimbabwe needs genuine reforms and a return to democracy were the only solutions to the country’s socio-economic and political crises.
His remarks come when Zimbabwe has planned an Anti-Sanctions march for this Friday after SADC resolved to make the day an Anti-Sanctions day.
Posting on Twitter, Chamisa said:
Zimbabweans are suffering because of failed leadership, corruption, bad governance and rigged elections. Only true REFORMS and a return to DEMOCRACY will fix Zimbabwe’s woes. The rest is mere propaganda and a hopeless waste of time, effort and money.
Meanwhile, the government is arguing that the sanctions are hurting the common man whilst Western states who imposed the sanctions are adamant that the sanctions are targeted on individuals and entities and not on the country perse.
Whilst the ruling ZANU PF argues that the sanctions were imposed because of the land reform programme which ejected white farmers from their farms, the USA, UK and EU insist that sanctions were imposed because of human rights abuse during the land reform programme, election times and other sad episodes in the history of the country.
