Tsvangirai’s Son Blocked From Opening Bank Account In China

The late founding president of the MDC Morgan Tsvangirai’s son, Richard Tsvangirayi was blocked from opening a bank account in China with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited (ICBC).

The reason for the denial was that as a Zimbabwean, he could not open a bank account in China because Zimbabwe, like South Sudan and Yemen, was under sanctions. Said Tsvangirayi:

So today I tried to open a bank account with Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited (ICBC) here in China, however, surprisingly, I couldn’t do so because I originate from a sensitive country, some of the countries who were on the backlist are South Sudan, Yemen.

Responding to a comment by a ZANU PF Twitter user, who said “welcome to sanctions Richard Tsvangirayi, when we say sanctions affect everyone we meant that”, Said Tsvangirayi:

You’re right sanctions are not good, but sanctions are a result of bad behaviour. Let’s address the fundamental problem because you can’t hate the tree and not hate the roots. The fundamental problem is the perpetuation of inhuman activities, by ending that, thus ending sanctions.

  1. And you say sanctions are targeted to only few Zimbabweans and the government should not blame sanctions for the challenges facing the nation.
