Govt Pays American Lobbyists Over US$1 Million

The government of Zimbabwe has hired another American consultancy firm, Avenue Strategies Global LLC, for US$1 080 000 to persuade the United States of America government to remove the restrictive measures imposed on Zimbabwe.

Part of the agreement between Avenue Strategies Global LLC and the Foreign Affairs and International Trade ministry reads:

For the services rendered by the contractor (Avenue Strategies Global LLC) as required by this agreement, the client (Zimbabwe government) will provide
compensation (the ‘compensation’) to the contractor of $90 000 per month, to be paid every three months.

A deposit of $270 000 (the “deposit”) will be payable by the client simultaneously with the execution and delivery hereof a signed agreement and every three months after.

… Registrant’s (Avenue Strategies Global LLC) activities on behalf of the foreign principal may include communications with Members of Congress and congressional staff, Executive branch officials, the media, and with other individuals and organisations involved in governmental and public policy matters.

About a month ago the government of Zimbabwe entered into a similar agreement with another American consultancy firm, Ballard Partners. The government paid the firm US$500 000.
