Former MDC Senior Offical Obert Gutu has issued an apology for the role he played in the imposition of sanctions on Zimbabwe by Western countries.

“It is of no doubt that these sanctions have caused undeniable suffering to ordinary Zimbabweans rather than targeting the so called ruling elite,” said Obert Gutu.

Gutu admited that he held several meetings with powerful Western Countries in his capacity as national spokesperson of the MDC during the time sanctions were imposed on the country.

“At some point I thought these sanctions were too little and wanted them to be extended.I passionately advocated for the imposition of these sanctions”

Obert Gutu further said that he is apologising for this to every Zimbabwean citizen for he did not know what he was doing.
