Nehanda Radio columnist, Tinomudaishe Chinyoka has expressed concern over the United States of America’s double standards as far as imposition of sanctions is concerned.
Chinyoka observed that there are several countries which to date are not under the US sanctions despite their bad record on human rights violations.
He posted a detailed report on human violations by Kenya and said:
It is the latest Human Rights Report on Kenya. Kenya whose president was indicted by the ICC on very serious crimes relating to politically motivated violence. Kenya, whose President was, oops, a guest at the White House in August 2018, just around the same time when Nairobi police were summarily executing that suspected carjacker.
Are there American sanctions against Kenya? I know that Trevor Ncube, in his interview with Brian Nichols, failed to ask this question, but we must ask. Where are the American sanctions against Kenya? Ever heard of them? Nor I.
For him, if sanctions were imposed based on a country’s level of violation of human rights, surely, Kenya and Rwanda could have been sanctioned before Zimbabwe since reports by the same USA suggest that there are serious violations of human rights compared to Zimbabwe.
