Zimbabwe People’s First (ZIM PF) which participated in the 2018 Harmonized Elections among other 22 political parties has refused to participate in the Zanu PF led Government Ant-Sanctions March to be held on the 25th this month.
In a press statement released today by the Party Spokesperson, Stephen Mazanza, Zim PF will not participate in the anti sanctions programme which is backed by the SADC saying the Zanu PF led government should first deal will issues at hand before calling for their removal.
“On the 25th of October The zanu pf government and SADC have set aside this day to call for the removal of sanctions imposed on them and individuals who have been looting our economy for decades whilst ordinary citizens suffer in poverty.”
“As Zim pf we will not participate because the ruling party still has a lot of reforming to do, Media,economic, security and electoral reforms are needed, removal of these targeted sanctions will allow these individuals to have movement to spend ravishingly all over the world when we are suffering in Zimbabwe.”
Apart from this Zim PF also criticized the ruling party for failing to accommodate them in the political dialogue after sending a request which never find any positive response since April this year.
“We have also requested to join the political dialogue but we have not been responded since April which now makes us wonder if the dialogue is really meant to bring heads together for the betterment of our country.”

“We have taken note of doctors strike which has been going on for over two months, but urges government to quickly resolve the stand off as innocent victims are dying.”
