“Million- man -march” preps at advanced stage

Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo will be the guest of honour at the anti-sanctions million- man- march organised by churches and the business community slated for March 1.

The First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa is also expected to attend, with participants gathering at Robert Mugabe Square to march in attempt to highlight ordinary Zimbabweans dissatisfaction at the ongoing Western-imposed sanctions.

The Zim Morning Post reported earlier this month that the Zimbabwe Amalgamated Churches Council had met Vice President Kembo Mohadi with an endorsed petition, in the hopes of compelling the European Union (EU) and United States to remove sanctions.

In a statement, the ruling Zanu-PF party’s secretary for information and publicity Simon Khaya Moyo urged the EU to listen to the calls made by the Southern African Development Community and the African Union to unconditionally lift the sanctions.

In an interview ZACC patron Jimayi Muduvuri said his organisation will paint Harare “white” as congregates and the business community are ready to take charge of the sanctions fight.

“We will paint Harare white and we want the world to see that churches and the business community are very clear on their call for the removal of sanctions,” Muduvuri said.
