Civic society, churches embark on door to door anti-sanctions campaign


MUTARE – The Civic Society and Church Joint Forum (CSCJF) has this week embarked on a countrywide door to door Zimbabwe anti- sanctions campaigns.

In an interview with this publication on Friday, the CSCJF National Coordinator Abigail Mupambi said her organisation was playing a pivotal role in the removal of sanctions on Zimbabwe.

She said sanctions have continuously bled the national economy and grossly affected people’s lives.

“As civic society and church groups it  is important to stress the point that the sanctions have hurt and continue to bleed our national economy and the Zimbabwean people’s

lives,” said Mupambi.

She said the door to door campaigns have begun in Harare and Mutare.

“We are embarking on door to door anti sanctions campaigns and civic education countrywide so that the masses understand how sanctions have heavily impacted on our economic and social situation,” added the firebrand Mupambi.

She said the concerted efforts of Zimbabwean government, companies and citizens to grow the economy all come to naught as a result of

leakages caused by sanctions.

Zimbabwe is building up to the SADC

region anti-Zimbabwe illegal sanctions campaign.

“Zimbabwe is elated that SADC has called for the removal of illegal

sanctions imposed on our country,” she said.

Mupambi believes that the setting aside of October 25 in SADC calendar will make a difference in Zimbabwe’s global campaign

against illegal sanctions.

“I call upon all stakeholders to play their part in objectively

narrating the Zimbabwe story,” Mupambi said.

At his address at the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly last month in New York, President Emmerson Mnangagwa called for the removal of sanctions on the country.
