“The U.S. Will Not Hesitate To Take Action To Promote Accountability,” – U.S. On Sanctions Against Tagwirei

United States Secretary of State Department Mike Pompeo has said the imposition of sanctions on Zimbabwean businessman Kuda Tagwirei is a way to demonstrate that the U.S. does not tolerate corruption.

Tagwirei, a close associate of President Mnangagwa, was added on to the sanctions list this Wednesday. Speaking on the development, Pompeo said:

We support a stable and democratic Zimbabwe. Our new sanctions against Kudakwashe Tagwirei and Sakunda Holdings today demonstrate to the government and people of Zimbabwe that the U.S. will not tolerate public corruption or hesitate to take action to promote accountability.

The U.S Embassy also posted on social media saying Kudakwashe Tagwirei & Sakunda Holdings had been listed for corruption. Added the Embassy:

The U.S. narrowly targets sanctions on those who engage in corruption, violate human rights, and undermine democratic institutions. They do not target the Zimbabwean people.

U.S. targeted sanctions now list 83 individuals and 37 entities. Targeted sanctions only restrict trade and travel for those who practice corruption, violate human rights, and undermine democratic institutions.
The U.S. Embassy encourages & facilitates U.S.-Zimbabwe trade & investment. U.S. targeted sanctions do not prohibit trade & business between our two countries. Implementing political & economic reforms will attract international investment and trade to benefit all Zimbabweans.

Among other things, Tagwirei is being accused of abusing US$3 billion Command Agriculture funds.
