US Sanctions on Zimbabwe Illegal – Ruling Party

Sanctions renewed by the United States on Zimbabwe are illegal, and will prevent Zimbabwe from receiving financial support from multinational financial institutions, Dickson Dzora, the director for administration at ruling Zimbabwean ZANU PF party told Sputnik on Friday.

“Those are illegal sanctions. They are not United Nations sanctions. A country is choosing to impose sanctions on another independent country which is what we don’t understand, because now they are just using their power, their muscle, in those multinational financial institutions to block any support,” Dzora said.

 US President Donald Trump announced on Monday the extension of US sanctions on Zimbabwe by a year. The sanctions will affect 141 entities and individuals in Zimbabwe, including Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the ZANU PF party.
