Germany Won’t Resume Bilateral Cooperation With Zim Until There Are Genuine Reforms

A delegation led by representatives from Germany’s Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development is expected in Harare for talks later this month. However, Germany is still sceptical about fully engaging Zimbabwe on the economic front.

The Germans are not yet convinced that the reforms undertaken by the Mnangagwa government are genuine and far-reaching. A spokesperson for the Germany Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development had this to say

The implementation of political and economic reforms by the Zimbabwean government is a prerequisite for the resumption of bilateral development cooperation.

Uwe Kekeritz, the opposition Green party’s parliamentary spokesman for development cooperation is also unconvinced by the Zimbabwe government’s appetite for reforms. He said

I do not see genuine political change with regards to the development of democratic structures. There are still many questions remaining with regards to human rights… Development assistance should be resumed, but in close cooperation with the civil society, as far away from the government as possible.
