The Zanu PF Womenâ€™s League is mulling taking the anti-sanctions campaign to Britain and her western allies as a follow up to the success of the National Anti Sanctions Petition Campaign that received over 2 million signatures from Zimbabweans.
Officiating at the Harare Provincial Womenâ€™s League Conference, Zanu PF Secretary for Women Affairs, Cde Oppah Muchinguri said it is high time women take the anti-sanctions campaign to the wives of the presidents, whose countries imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe, saying women are more understanding than their male counterparts.
â€œWe have resolved to take the anti-sanctions campaign to the wives of those countriesâ€™ Heads of State. Mitchel Obama might be better to understand our plight and might in turn talk sense to her husband,â€ Cde Muchinguri said.
Cde Muchinguri also castigated some elements in the MDC-T led local authorities for corruptly allocating stands along party lines and urged women to take advantage of the provisions in the Global Political Agreement that guarantees women to own farms.
Earlier on, the Zanu PF Harare Provincial Womenâ€™s League Chairperson, Cde Mary Chakanyuka had complained that women in the capital have been left out on land redistribution exercise and some self helping projects.
â€œWe are calling for party leaders to look into our plight as party supporters in Harare. We want land,â€ she said.
The Harare Provincial Womenâ€™s League Conference was attended by women party leadership in the capital and provides women with an opportunity to exchange ideas and get feedback on the developments in the inclusive government.
