Prison Time a Possibility for Zimbabweans Calling for Sanctions?

Victor Matemadanda, national political commissar of the ruling ZANU-PF, has said that legal action should be taken against those calling for sanctions against the country. He added: "In some countries, whoever says negative things about their own country will be prosecuted and rot in jail. The party should direct government to put in place a policy on proper use of all media, especially social media, by party members."
