A very good evening members of the fourth Estate. As you may be aware that October 25 is a day set aside to tell the whole world about the illegal sanctions that were imposed by the Western countries on Zimbabwe.

My ministry, Ministry of Information Publicity and Broadcasting Services has been mandated to build the national image and among them is to tell the story of how the illegal sanctions are impacting negatively on our economy and the livelihoods of our people.

Sanctions have had a negative impact on our economy but thanks to President Emmerson Mnangagwa who has introduced transformative economic initiatives that have positively impacted on all our economic sectors including mining, agriculture, manufacturing, medical, tourism and even technological developments.

Zimbabwe has been denied access to international lines of credit.

Thanks to our inward looking policies, the Government was able to entirely fund the fight against COVID 19 pandemic.

In reversing the menacing impact of sanctions as a tool to undermine our national democracy and economic sovereignty, His Excellency President Cde Dr E.D Mnangagwa initiated the engagement and re-engagement policy.

In so doing, the President repositioned Zimbabwe’s diplomatic outlook for accelerated investment inflows to our country.

Industrial growth has overtaken the stagnation that the economic sector had endured prior to the birth of the Second Republic.

Therefore, I urge all media players to take advantage of Government’s initiative to free the airwaves so as to enable the public to freely call for the unconditional removal of sanctions.

The media must be pro-active in exposing how the illegal sanctions play a massive sabotage to our national interest.

Tomorrow’s Anti-Sanctions Day commemorations will be highlighted by three major events:

⦁ Anti-Sanctions March

We are inviting all Zimbabweans, all civil servants and all parastatals to join the anti-sanctions march in Harare tomorrow.

Zimbabweans will assemble at Munhumutapa Building, between fouth Street and Sam Nujoma Street, along Samora Machel Avenue.

They will march along Samora Machel Avenue towards Julius Nyere Way. They will turn into Julius Nyerere way and turn into Nelson Mandela Avenue heading to Africa Unity Square.

⦁ Anti-Sanctions Summit

Zimbabweans will also gather in Mutoko at Gohori Resort where the second edition of the Sadc Anti Sanction solidarity summit will be held from 8am until the end of the day.

A programme of action has been lined up and the guest of honour will be Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Dr. J Muswere.

⦁ Anti-Sanctions gala

Zimbabweans will also gather in Dotito for an Anti-Sanctions gala which will see a cocktail of artists entertaining the people in commemoration of the anti-sanctions day.

All Zimbabweans are therefore invited to join the rest of the nation in celebrating the anti-sanctions day.

This year’s commemorations focus on the appreciation of the youth. The resilience of the youth against the sanctions.
The focus is also on harnessing the youth in the fight against the illegal sanctions.

The people of Zimbabwe and in particular the youth have a responsibility to defeat the illegal sanctions. For the second Chimurenga, colonization was defeated by the youth who fought against white minority oppressors.

The youth should sharpen the national strategic, thinking, harnessing all domestic and international resources including the intellectual capability to defeat the illegal sanctions.

I thank you all!

Dr Muwere is Zimbabwe Minister Of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services
