Churches have joined in the call for illegal sanctions against Zimbabwe.
Religious groupings who are a key constituency in the country, are arguing that the impact of sanctions on the lives of ordinary people is now an issue that cannot be ignored.
Pastor Elizabeth Matsenga of the Family Covenant urged Zimbabweans to unite and with hope to continue praying for Zimbabwean leaders and the nation as a whole.
“As a church we love our country, our people and our leaders. The responsibility of the church and Christians is to pray for the country. If we pray for the country and its leadership it’s us who benefit. We condemn sanctions as they affect everyone,” said Pastor Matsenga.
She made these remarks at a recent prayer group meeting where religious leaders in Manicaland converged to pray for the removal of illegal sanctions against Zimbabwe.
On October 25 SADC countries will join Zimbabwe for the Anti-Sanctions Day, where they will be showing solidarity in the country`s two decade long fight against sanctions from the United States of America and the European Union.
