The president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa told the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that economic sanctions against Zimbabwe need to be removed.

He also called upon the international community to provide a comprehensive stimulus package for African countries. Ramaphosa said:

This will enable African countries to not only mitigate the health impacts of Covid-19 but to aid us in the immense task of rebuilding our shattered economies.

To ensure that no country is left behind, we reiterate our position as the African Union that economic sanctions against Zimbabwe and Sudan should be lifted to allow their governments to respond adequately to the pandemic.

Western countries particularly the United Kingdom, the United States and their allies, imposed sanctions on the Southern African country following a controversial fast track land reform programme that was marred by human rights violations.

While the Western powers claim that the sanctions are targeted, the Zimbabwean government and other analysts say the sanctions have an unintended effect on the general populace.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) in 2019 set aside 25 October as the anti-sanctions day in solidarity with Zimbabwe saying the demise of the Zimbabwean economy affects all economies in the region.

  1. Africa – STOP STEALING YOUR COUNTRYS’ MONEY, then you would have more. Also, if you want the spending and the rich tourist to come back to Africa soon, then do away with Visa fees.

  2. Why he is the next goon and his new reverse anc anc party that will face sanctions if they don’t practice what they preach
