SA has made a clarion call to the international community to lift the unfair and unjustified sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.

We made this position clear at the World Economic Forum in Davos and recently at the European Union.

We are pleased that the EU has lifted sanctions on some members of your government. We want more than just that, we want to see real support for Zimbabwe.

Ramaphosa is being accompanied by international relations minister Lindiwe Sisulu, finance minister Tito Mboweni, trade minister Rob Davies and state security minister Siyabonga Cwele, among other government and business officials.

Meanwhile, President Emmerson Mnangagwa appreciated Ramaphosa’s remarks. He said:

Your outspoken support for the new Zimbabwe is not taken for granted, you have stood with us regionally and internationally. We appreciate your support and call for the unconditional removal of sanctions.

The bi-national commission was first signed in April 2015 and there are 45 agreements between the two countries.

One Comment on “Ramaphosa ‘Pleased’ EU Lifted Sanctions On Some Zim Govt Officials

  1. South Africa as an upper middle income economy could help transform Zimbabwe if only the international cold feet (engendered by a controversial land reform and 2018 Electoral Outcome) on Zimbabwe become warm initially by the later graduating from fundamental revolutionary and historical rigidities which are quite divisive from the national, regional, continental and international diplomatic landscape. Certainly a warm international diplomatic landscape is critical also for South Africa and the rest of other SADC member states to be of greater use to Zimbabwe and short of that it will just be a typical political gimmick grounded in reminiscing on, and momentum of the revolutionary past.
