Zanu PF has made it clear they hope the new USA administration that will assume duty on Wednesday will thaw the icy relationship between Harare and Washington, up to the point of even removing sanctions imposed on 84 individuals and 37 entities by the US, The Sunday News reports.
Zanu PF released a statement taking a jab at the US Ambassador Brian Nichols and what they called “usual” critics and congratulated Joe Biden and said they hope he will remove sanctions against Zimbabwe.
Said part of the statement released by Zanu Pf Spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo:
Having pointed out those anomalies which we expect the usual detractors to self-introspect and take corrective action on, the revolutionary Party, Zanu-PF, wishes the American people and its President elect Joe Biden success on his forthcoming term of office which begins after his inauguration on 20 January 2020. Given our existing cordial relations with the USA, we look forward to the new USA administration to remove the illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.
Joe Biden however is one of the people who were part of the team that signed the ZIDERA Bill into effect in the early 2000s according to a letterhead that circulated on social media in November 2020.
