It is not surprising that the Zanu PF so-called anti-sanctions march flopped. Zimbabweans are currently faced with problems like electricity outages, high prices, and water shortages hence their choice to stay away from this non-event.
It is very clear that the anti-sanctions rhetoric represents a pie in the sky and is meant to chlorinate (President) Emmerson Mnangagwa’s failed leadership. Unfortunately, it did not yield the desired results.
Despite several months of building up to the SADC-initiated Anti-sanctions Day, fewer people than expected across the country bothered to attend the marches.
At the 39th SADC Summit held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the Heads of State and Government set aside the 25th of October 2019 as a day to collectively call for the removal of the US and EU sanctions on Zimbabwe.
