Mugabe to table sanctions issue at SADC
Johannesburg - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will table the issue of the West's economic sanctions at the SADC summit to be held in Angola next month, Zimbabwe's Herald Online reported on Tuesday.
This after more than 2.2 million Zimbabweans signed a National Anti-Sanctions Petition, Zanu-PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo said.
He said that Zimbabweans countrywide had signed the petition following the launch of a campaign in March. It drew people from all walks of life, among them academics, political, business and religious leaders.
Gumbo said the issue would also be raised at other regional and international forums such as the African Union and the United Nations.
"We have collected more than two million signatures and we are waiting for the president to announce the decision on the results of the campaign. He [Mugabe] will go with that result to the forthcoming SADC summit to be held in Angola next month."
