ZANU PF Secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Patrick Chinamasa says the Party is grateful for the support in calling for the removal of the illegally imposed sanctions.
The West imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe after it embarked on the Land Reform Programme which benefited over 300 000 black majority.
The negative publicity that was peddled by some local and international media resulted in downward trend in tourist arrivals and closing shop of many companies.
Speaking during a weekly press briefing at the Party Headquarters Cde Chinamasa said "the Party joins the rest of the Nation and the entire SADC region and AU in calling for the removal of illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe, most importantly through the SADC declared 25 October Anti-Sanctions Day," he said.
"The Party expresses gratitude to African Heads of States like President Paul Kagame, President John Magufuli, President Cyril Ramaphosa and others for vehemently denouncing illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe before the United Nation General Assembly."
Preparations for this year's Anti-Sanctions Day are going on well with many organizations among them Broad Alliance Against Sanctions moving a gear up to pile pressure on the West to unconditionally remove the illegal sanctions.
