PRESIDENT Mnangagwa will headline the fourth annual SADC Anti-Sanctions Day commemorations with a virtual address to the nation.
SADC countries declared October 25 a day to demonstrate regional solidarity with Zimbabwe against the illegal sanctions.
This year’s commemoration will be held under the theme: “Enhancing Zimbabwe’s Resilience through Economic Development and Engagement and Re-engagement.”
Addressing Tuesday’s post-Cabinet briefing, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said a concept paper on the theme and activities to mark the day had been approved.
She said this year’s theme was, “in recognition of the concrete steps the country has taken in strengthening engagement and re-engagement at bilateral and multilateral levels.
“The event will showcase the progress the country is making with the economic transformation drive, through His Excellency, the President’s mantra, ‘nyika inovakwa nevene vayo/ilizwe lakhiwa ngabanikazi balo.’”
Minister Mutsvangwa said activities lined up for the day include media awareness campaigns on the nature and impact of sanctions, and a music concert scheduled for Chitungwiza Aquatic Complex.
