US Ambassador Says Zim Needs Urgent Political & Economic Reforms

America’s ambassador to Zimbabwe, Brian Nichols, says he has been impressed by the government of Zimbabwe’s announcement that repressive laws of the Mugabe era will be amended.

Nichols said this in an interview with State media on the sidelines of Women’s History Month commemoration film screening in Harare last week. He said:

This Government has been working towards reform. I have been impressed and I have always said so . . . I know that the Cabinet has approved the principles for the repeal of Posa (Public Order and Security Act) and has been discussing the repeal of AIPPA (Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act) and those are all very positive things.

I think that there is great urgency both politically and economically to continue down the road of reform as this administration has laid out, and we encourage them to pursue those reforms as well as to address the outstanding recommendations . . . All of this is very positive and I believe that if this Government pursues them, the international community will respond.
