US Senators Who Proposed Tougher Conditions For Sanctions Removal Arrive In Zim

United States of America Senators Jeff Flake and Chris Coons who introduced a bill to lay the framework for U.S. relations with the new government in Zimbabwe, arrived in the country yesterday on a tour during which they will discuss Zimbabwe-US relations before flying back on Sunday.

The two want the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001 to be amended and tougher conditions set out for sanctions to be lifted. Speaking to The Herald, US embassy’s public diplomacy officer Ms Stacy Lomba confirmed the two senators were in the country. Said Lomba:

The delegation is here in Harare to meet the President of Zimbabwe, civic society and opposition political parties. Remember, the senators participated in the ZDERA amendment and they will depart on Sunday after meeting all the targeted people.

Senator Chris Coons will address a media briefing on Saturday (April 7, 2018) at 2.15pm at Armadale Lodge in Borrowdale.
