Govt Condemns EU Sanctions On Zimbabwe

Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Sibusiso Moyo has said the recent continuation of sanctions on Zimbabwe is a setback.

Moyo said the continuation of sanctions is not synonymous with Zimbabwe’s re-engagement efforts. Said Moyo:

The recent EU Council continued restrictive measures on Zimbabwe have been noted as a progressive, but still remain a setback as they affect sitting members of Government in the Second Republic. The continuation of any form of sanctions is not synonymous with Zimbabwe’s re-engagement efforts. Government of Zimbabwe will continue to make efforts to solidify genuine re-engagement.

  1. Every responsible and patriotic Zimbabwean should blame those sanctions because in reality sanctions are affecting the general populace not those in the sanctions list.

  2. There are NO EU sanctions against ZImbabwe,
    The EU have sanctions against a few individuals, eg Robert and Grace Mugabe and a few others (the others are suspended and not enforced). The individual sanctions mean a travel ban to the EU on those named individuals and an asset freeze on any assets those individuals hold in the EU. There is also a ban on trade with one company called Zimbabwe Defence Industries (ZDI), meaning that no EU company or individual may do business with ZDI, an arms procurement company under the Ministry of Defence.
    The above summarise the EU sanctions, there are no sanctions against Zimbabwe in general or against the people of Zimbabwe in general.
    The EU sanctions DO NOT affect ordinary Zimbabweans (The US sanctions do)
    If the EU drops the sanctions it will allow Grace to go to Milan and shop again in Gucci. It seems that those calling for the EU to drop sanctions are being urged to do so by Bob and Grace because Grace wants to go shopping again in Harrods. Pathetic!
    I am bored with the mis-information regarding the EU sanctions.
