Zimbabwe strongly condemns Morocco for causing untold suffering among millions of Saharawi people

Western Sahara-2

Zanu-PF has strongly condemned Morocco for causing untold suffering among millions of Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic nationals whose country it is illegally occupying.

Speaking at a meeting with SADR ambassador Mr Mohamed Cheij Saleh Ali yesterday, the party’s secretary for youth Cde Pupurai Togarepi said Morocco was violating the rights of the people in the country also known as Western Sahara.

“zanu-pf Youth League will, where possible, offer support to the youths of Western Sahara as it has remained the only colonised country on the African continent,” said Cde Togarepi.

zanu-pf acknowledged the United Nations mission to organise a referendum in Western Sahara.

“As zanu-pf, we support the initiatives of the African Union of recommending the UN to deploy a peacekeeping mission in Western Sahara to monitor gross human rights violations in both occupied and liberated territories of the Western Sahara,” he said, adding that zanu-pf would remain in solidarity with the youth and the people of Western Sahara in their struggle for self determination.

Cde Togarepi said all African countries should unite to fight the colonisation of SADR.

Mr Ali acknowledged the support his country was receiving from Zimbabwe.

“You have been supporting us for a long time and that is very recognised,” he said. “We need to strengthen our relationship through exchanging our experiences.

Western Sahara is divided from north to south by a sand wall of 2 700 kilometres built by Morocco during the 1980s.

Morocco now controls everything west of the barrier which forms SADR, including all the habitable territory and the natural resources.
