COGNISANT that the 39th Ordinary Summit of SADC Heads of States and Government held in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, strongly condemned the prolonged adverse illegal economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the West and unequivocally called for their unconditional removal;

 

MINDFUL that SADC has always been calling for the immediate lifting of sanctions to facilitate the socio-economic recovery of the country leading to the resolution to declare the 25th October 2019 as the date on which SADC Members States collectively voice their disapproval of the illegal sanctions through various activities and platforms

 

DEEPLY CONCERNED with the duplicity by the West and its allies who are masking the protracted illegal regime change agenda under the guise of targeted sanctions

 

GRAVELY DISTURBED that the so-called targeted sanctions have brought untold suffering to ordinary Zimbabweans through de – industrialization resulting in high levels of unemployment, among many other economic challenges

 

WORRIED that the crippling sanctions have affected all spheres of our economic and social services through the ever-increasing skills flight which has decimated all meaningful development in the last two decades;

 

NOTING with disdain the arrogant unilateralism and disrespect for the rule of law of countries that illegally imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe;

 

NOW, THEREFORE;

 

  • Calls upon the United States of America, the European Union and its allies to urgently and unconditionally remove the illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe at their instigation as these have resulted in horrendous suffering of the ordinary Zimbabwean citizens;
  • Resolves that dialogue be given a chance and that the perpetrators be encouraged by the collective voice of the SADC Region to urge their governments to lift all forms of sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe;
  • Applauds the SADC Region for rising with one voice in support of the unconditional and immediate removal of the illegal economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe-Hon Sen. Mbohwa.
