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

 

  1.  Hon Kwaramba

              Hon S. Banda

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       [Days elapsed: 2]

                                               

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;

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;
