Zanu PF Mashonaland East Province has joined the rest of the nation and SADC member states in calling for the unconditional removal of the illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the United States and some European countries.

Zimbabwe has been under the hurtful sanctions for almost two decades now.

The call by Zanu PF Mashonaland East Province comes a few days before Zimbabwe joins SADC and the progressive world on Monday in calling for the immediate, unconditional removal of sanctions.

Sadc Heads of State and Government declared October 25 as the day to campaign as a region for the unconditional removal of sanctions on Zimbabwe.

This year, Zimbabwe commemorates the SADC Anti-Sanctions Solidarity Day under the theme, “Zimbabwe: Friend to All, Enemy to None: Forging Ahead and Enhancing Innovation and Productivity in Adversity of Sanctions”.

While addressing party members during the Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting held in Marondera yesterday, Zanu PF acting chairman for Mashonaland East Province, Cde Michael Madanha, called on the entire province to join the world in calling for the removal of the sanctions on Monday.

“Our suffering is caused by these sanctions. On October 25, SADC countries are demonstrating and calling out to the West for the removal of these sanctions.

“As a country, we are also on this day calling out for the removal of illegal sanctions imposed on our nation. We are aware that sanctions were invited by some people in the opposition party so that people would suffer and then turn against their Government.

“So, sanctions were imposed to effect regime change in Zimbabwe. However, we had suffered more during the armed struggle when we were liberating this country, so this strategy will not work. We are saying as Zanu PF, sanctions must go.”

Cde Madanha said those who called for the sanctions must go back to their Western colleagues and tell them to lift the sanctions “immediately”.

He said the sanctions were affecting every citizen regardless of political affiliation.

Meanwhile, among the things the PCC meeting wanted was to have an update on the preparations for the upcoming Zanu PF National Annual People’s Conference.

The hybrid conference will include a virtual audience and some physically present at the main venue in Bindura, Mashonaland Central Province, where the party leadership will be.

Venues with giant screens have been mounted across the country and Mashonaland East delegates will be at Goromonzi High School.

Zanu PF Mashonaland East Province said preparations for the conference were at an advanced stage, with accommodation, food and transport logistics already in place.
