Zimbabweâ€™s youths have been urged to join hands and take advantage of the indigenisation and economic empowerment programmes by government to fight the effects of the illegal sanctions imposed on the country by the West.Youths in the country have been urged to rally behind the indigenisation and economic empowerment programmes by government to counter the impact of the decade long illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by Britain and her allies.
This was said by ZANU PF Secretary for Youth Affairs, Cde Absolom Sikhosana who was the guest of honour at the Youth Against Sanctions Organisation (YASO) launch in the capital.
Cde. Sikhosana lamented the illegal sanctions which he said is a war declared on Zimbabwe.
â€œThe only way to fight this war is to utilise our resources fully….you have to support indigenisation and economic empowerment programmes, as they are the way to liberate ourselves,â€ said Cde Sikhosana.
President of the Youth Against Sanctions Organisation, Cde. Godfrey Tsenenganu said YASO is aimed at lobbying for other organisations across the globe to pressure the West to own up and remove the illegal embargo which has destroyed Zimbabweâ€™s social fabric.
“We have to be bold, we have to take the enemy by the horns because these sanctions are crippling the future of this nation,â€ Cde Tsenenganu said.
The illegal sanctions were imposed on the country after Britain internationalised her bilateral dispute with Zimbabwe over land.
