Nelson Chamisa, the Movement for Democratic Change leader has finally recognised that sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the Western countries since 2001 were undesirable.

Chamisa says the restrictions formed twin evils with Zanu-PF which should both be relegated to the dust bin, reported.
He was addressing party supporters at a 'thank you' rally in Chiredzi weekend.

"Zanu-PF and sanctions must go because they are twins, they walk together," said the opposition leader.

"When you see sanctions, you see Zanu-PF; when you see Zanu-PF, you see sanctions.

"We have said we don't want sanctions on our country, but sanctions can only go if we remove Zanu-PF, because Zanu-PF is the one that invited sanctions in this country."

The opposition leader's viewpoints towards measures deliberately imposed on the Zanu-PF led administration on alleged rights abuses and poll fraud, could be an attempt to flip the long-held narrative that MDC was complicit in the imposition of sanctions by its former western allies.

Zanu-PF has blamed nearly all the country's economic troubles on sanctions.
