Zimbabwe : ZANU PF force villagers to sign anti-sanctions petition

ZANU PF Member of Parliament for Gokwe Central Dorothy Mhangami with the help of war veterans and party youths on Tuesday January 26, 2011 force marched villagers to attend a rally at Gokwe Centre where she told scores of people in attendance to come in their numbers and sign a petition calling for the removal of sanctions.

This is part of a ZANU PF campaign to have more than a million signatures throughout the country against the targeted sanctions imposed by the West on President Robert Mugabe and his allies endorsed on a petition.

According to a ZPP monitor present during the meeting, Mhangami told the people gathered that they were not expecting less than 3000 signatures from her Gokwe Central constituency.

The Member of Parliament issued verbal threats to the scores of people who attended the meeting urging them to bring their national identity cards on January 31, 2011 the day set aside for the signing of the petition.

She told them that all those who fail to sign will have to explain why they want the sanctions to remain on force.

Meanwhile from Masvingo Province, the war veterans’ leader Jabulani Sibanda has been moving from one constituency to the other forcing people to append their signatures on the petition.

On Wednesday January 26, 2011, Sibanda was reported to be in Gutu West constituency where he held several meetings at Matizha Township, Kanongovere Primary School, and Serima Township.

ZPP monitors on the ground report that the village heads already have all the names of their subjects and members of the sanctions committee are moving door-to-door forcing people to append their signatures against their names.

Early this month ZANU PF set up an anti-sanctions committee to be headed by war veterans’ leader Sibanda to carry out a national campaign where people will be coerced to sign the petition against sanctions.
