The Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development (ZIMCODD) and its partners continue to speak on the urgency of the debt crisis for Zimbabwe. As part of its efforts, a Week of Action Against Debt injustice was tabled in the week starting the 25th of October 2021.
This week of Action is designed to build a strong movement and citizen agency around debt injustices in Zimbabwe as well as raise awareness amongst the general citizens on the socioeconomic impacts of debt. Through bringing citizens in the conversations around debt, the week of action will further proffer recommendations for addressing the debt question as an important step towards the realisation of debt justice in Zimbabwe
At a time when the #HowFar campaign has continued to gain momentum on its thrust of demanding accountability from duty bearers on various issues of national importance, this week of action seeks to spark renewed attention on debt which remains one of the economic challenges that the country is grappling with.
