UK’s Peter Hain Applies For More Sanctions On Zimbabwe

Peter Hain, a member of the House of Lords in Britain, on April 27 2021, wrote a letter to British Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, demanding that the UK places additional sanctions against Zimbabwe.

Hain accuses Zimbabwe of being behind the alleged abduction of the MDC Alliance trio, Joana Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova.

He further cites how the government handles the “ill” Harare West legislator, Mmombe as the basis for the imposition of sanctions on the Southern African country.

In the letter, Hain asks Raab “what steps HMG is taking to the Zimbabwean government to account for these gross violations of human rights?”

The MDC trio claims that it was abducted by suspected state security forces while in police custody in May 2020.

Mamombe and colleagues had been arrested for organising, leading and participating in a flash food demonstration in Warren Park.

The state said the protest was in violation of COVID-19-induced lockdown regulations meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The state also denies allegations that the trio was abducted saying the alleged heinous act was staged to soil the image of the President Emmerson Mnangagwa-led administration.

The UK, and its allies, first imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe at the turn of the millennium following the chaotic land reform programme in Zimbabwe that saw scores of white farmers being displaced.

The UK claimed that there was a gross violation of human rights as some white farmers were killed and or disposed of their properties.

The world giant is adamant that the sanctions will be removed once Zimbabwe has implemented requisite reforms that promote and enhance democracy.

Zimbabwe which denies the allegations of human rights abuses, says it will implement reforms at a sustainable pace.

  1. I don’t understand this British called Peter Hain. How many black people were killed cold blooded by the police in America. Is the issue of Zimbabwe a human rights or greedy from Britons.

  2. This Briton who talks of rule of rule law wants an extension of sanctions that he knows are illegal.Johana is live and kicking,why not apply for the Britons to be sanctioned for the disappear ance of Edison Sithole,and the witholding of Humana heads of our heroes they still have in their displays in this 21st century.What human rights can this terrorist Briton can tell us when he is not explaining what they did to the people whose heads they hold captive.What they did to them was worse than the abuses they claim to be done on Mamombe.Tirikurera varungu sembwa nemukaka dai tangopedza kuvatirera mapurazi nemugodhi tizviraramise isu panguva yose yatichange tiri mumasanctions avo Ari illegal ivo vachiti they are watchdogs of rule of law.My warning is that,when God want people to achieve total independence from colonialists ,HE(God) hardens the hearts of the White Pharaohs for us Zimbabwe to rethink over what the whites are doing to us.Let us take all gold mines,remaining farms because kugarisana kwacho kwaramba.
