- Government has invited the the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe and Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance to add their voices against sanctions.
GOVERNMENT has invited the MDC Alliance and MDC-T to grace the SADC Anti-Sanctions commemorations set for 24 October.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it remains unclear where the commemorations will be held but Zanu PF will hold an e-gala in Bulawayo.
However, secretary of information Nick Mangwana has said the government had sent an invitation to the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe and Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance to add their voices against sanctions.
The West and the US imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe at the turn of the millennium accusing the Zanu PF regime of failing to obey the rule of law and implementing economic and political reforms.
The West insists it willing to remove the sanctions if Harare implements certain political and economic reforms.
Mangwana confirmed the government had joined hands with different stakeholders such as businesses, churches, political parties, and civil society for this year’s commemorations.
“We have joined hands with other progressive stakeholders such as business, political parties, and civil society to hold this year’s anti-sanctions e-gala.
“We extend an invitation to the MDC-T and MDC-A and others to come and give a shout against sanctions,” he said. – Online ■
