The government has declared October 25th, a public holiday, apart from examination writing classes, as it pushes for greater participation in what has been dubbed the anti-sanctions march.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration announced after Cabinet Monday that the move to declare the day a holiday is aimed at amplifying activities around the day.
