Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Nelson Chamisa says he will only call for the removal of sanctions after he meets President Emmerson Mnangagwa and agree on, and implement political reforms.
Chamisa said this while addressing thousands of MDC supporters at Chisamba Grounds in Mutare’s Sakubva high-density suburb over the weekend. He said:
I told Mnangagwa that let us unite… because we have a problem in the home … Let’s resolve our differences and after we agree on the needed reforms we then go out with one position and demand that all sanctions be lifted.
They will be lifted because of who will be asking for their removal … They will not listen to crooks.
The ruling ZANU PF party has been calling for the immediate and unconditional removal of the targeted sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe at the turn of the Millenium by the United States and the European Union.
The Western powers have, however, insisted that Harare undertakes comprehensive political reforms for the restrictive measures to be removed.
