The EU has lamented the pace at which the government is implementing recommended reforms, Newsday reports.
This was revealed by EU ambassador to Zimbabwe Timo Olkkonen, in an interview with the publication. Olkkonen said:
We want to see faster pace in implementing reforms. It is now one and half years since the TSP (Transitional Stabilisation Programme) was published. That is the main policy document. It is more than a year since the Motlanthe Commission came up with its recommendations in its report.
It is way more over than a year when election observation missions gave their recommendations. There are issues around the constitutional alignment such as section 210 about the independent complaints mechanism. So there are issues that we would want to be seeing concrete results delivered on.
Meanwhile, 2 US senators have urged their government’s Treasury department to update the list of persons on the US sanctions list, after they said the government is misinforming the people of Zimbabwe about sanctions.
