Committe Chairman, Vice President John Landa Nkomo said in a statement the support sent a strong message to Britain, The European Union and America that the Zimbabweans have rejected the anti-people politics that thrive on illegal sanctions and suffering of the people.

Cde Nkomo said a resolute beginning has been made and what is left is for people to move forward together by supporting the actual programme in its various facets.

Meanwhile, the business community in Gwanda says the illegal sanctions imposed on the country which are purported to be targeted at certain individuals in government  are a gross violation of human rights as they are affecting ordinary Zimbabweans.

 

In a survey carried out by ZBC News, the business people commended the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe for leading the country in a renewed fight against sanctions saying it is only logical for every citizen of the country to rally behind him to have the sanctions lifted.

 

Commenting on the decision by the two MDC formations to boycott the Anti-Sanction Petition, residents in Gwanda said it is a clear testimony of MDCs’ hypocrisy and lack of commitment towards addressing the plight of the people.

 

The launch was led by Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe.
