THOUSANDS of Zimbabweans, the majority being Zanu PF supporters, Friday staged a 3km march from an open space on the peripheries of the Harare CBD to the National Sports Stadium (NSS), in protest over the continued existence of Western imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe.

In his keynote speech at the country’s main stadium, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said sanctions have taken away the nation’s dignity and were a human rights violation against Zimbabweans.

Below are some of the images captured during the march and at the NSS.
