  1. Hon Togarepi

Hon Priscilla Moyo

            That this House

 

            MINDFUL that at the attainment of Zimbabwe` s Independence in 1980 the         Government of the First Republic extended an olive branch of peace as an         endeavour to show its unwavering commitment to reconciliation with the            erstwhile enemies as a way of fostering peace, tranquillity and lasting unity;

            DISTURBED that the imperialists and their surrogates deliberately sought to         undermine such noble gestures by Government and resorted to diabolic        strategies at the instigation of their paymasters and embarked on a smear campaign meant to vilify all noble efforts  to achieve everlasting peace for the        First Republic and its generations to come;

            COGNISANT that the same forces of imperialism supported by their kith and       kin have always been at the forefront of the under develop campaign of our motherland and have shamelessly perpetrated the most heinous crimes ever on   the black majority since the inception of colonialism;

            CONDEMNING IN THE STRONGEST OF TERMS the unethical practice by     our former colonizers who decultured our people and portrayed our land as      that of uncivilized and poverty stricken tribesmen all in  the quest to entrench            their hegemony and to grab the land for their personal aggrandisement, with no form of reparation to the dispossessed  black majority, the rightful owners         of the land;

            NOTING WITH DISDAIN that more than four decades after the attainment of    our independence there are some die hard imperialists who still suffer from      nostalgia and dream of repossessing our land, our heritage, through spurious       and unfounded arguments that they deserve reparation from our Government             for the land that was rightfully repossessed and handed over to its owners, the       people of Zimbabwe,

            NOW , THEREFORE, in view of the foregoing,

  1. Calls upon our citizens to stand firm in solidarity and thwart any attempts by forces of imperialism to even raise in any for a issues to do with any form of compensation to such misguided malcontents;
  2. Demand restitution from the countries that caused untold sufferings to the Black majority and unduly benefitted from the economic resources of our land;
  3. Demand reparation for each of the years that the country laboured under the bondage of colonialism; and

            Strongly condemn the imposition of sanctions on Zimbabwe for repossessing         its land from imperialists

 

  1. Hon Kwaramba

              Hon S. Banda

 

That this House-

NOTING with concern that since the outbreak of COVID 19 there has been a sharp increase of gender-based violence (GBV) especially domestic violence in the country;

AWARE that Zimbabwe is a signatory of UN international and regional treaties and protocols against GBV, amongst them CEADW, SADC Protocol on Gender and Development;

ACKNOWLEDGING the United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE by 2030 to End Violence against Women campaign (UNiTE campaign) that calls for global actions to increase awareness, galvanize advocacy efforts, to end GBV;

Aware that this year’s theme for 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which will run from 25 November to 10 December 2021, is “Orange the world: End violence against women now!”

RECOGNIZING the efforts that the government has been taking to curb the scourge of GBV through policies and activities in provinces and districts;

WORRIED that if urgent measures are not taken to reduce the prevalence of GBV, there is real risk that GBV will be a real pandemic within the COVID 19 crisis;

NOW, THEREFORE, CALLS upon the Executive to do more to curb GBV among communities by, among others

  • deploying more GBV mobile services in districts and provinces; and
  • building more safe houses
