Zanu-PF national Political Commissar Victor Matemadanda has called upon MDC-A leadership to apologise to the majority of Zimbabweans for “inviting sanctions which are hurting the country’s economy”.
Speaking at a press conference in Harare yesterday, Matemadanda said the country’s former colonisers and the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC-A are riled by the Second Republic success in re-engagement as demonstrated by the Anti-Sanctions Day commemorated by SADC countries on October 25.
“Fellow Zimbabweans who go shopping for sanctions must repent and awaken to the emerging reality that Zimbabwe is for Zimbabweans and must truly thrive to do good to polite Zimbabweans.
“We have always asserted that these Western states seek to inflict poverty and anguish to Zimbabweans to effect regime change, while championing self-hate propaganda to fellow Zimbabweans,” he said.
British House of Lords, in what Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Busi Moyo said was typical colonial hangover style, on Tuesday spent time debating Zimbabwe, with members alleging a relationship between President Mnangagwa and Henrietta Rushwaya who was arrested for attempting to smuggle six kilogrammes of gold early this week.
During the debate, the British also revealed yet another plot to lean on African countries and the world at large to isolate Zimbabwe, alleging human rights abuses and the closure of democratic space.
Matemadanda however said that President Mnangagwa’s relentless determination to fight corruption might be the greatest scare to some people with British connections who are hiding behind a thin political veil.
“The anti-corruption crusade is here to stay. Economic reconstruction trajectory will remain a signature to President Mnangagwa’s leadership in the Second Republic,” said Matemadanda. ■
