The illegal sanctions which were imposed on Zimbabwe by the West can be busted through a robust indigenous and economic empowerment drive.

This was said by ZANU PF Zvimba Coordinating Committee Secretary for Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment, who is also the district’s Councillor for Ward 26,  Cde Francis Mukwangwariwa at a field day held at Mispar farm in Mashonaland West Province.

Cde Mukwangwariwa who is also the Province’s secretary for indigenisation and economic empowerment, urged Zimbabweans to remain resolute in defending national interests.

Cde Mukwangwariwa commended the host of the field day, Mr. Pios Nyamunokora for excelling in farming and donated a plough.

Mr. Nyamunokora thanked the local community for supporting him in his venture and encouraged other farmers to work hard.

Nyabira District Chairman, Cde Clemence Machekera who was also at the field day encouraged people to work hard to bust the illegal sanctions.

The West imposed illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe to punish the country for trying to correct a colonial injustice which saw indigenous people being economically subjugated, while the white elite owned vast tracts of productive land.
