African Union Repeats Call For The Lifting Of Sanctions Against Zimbabwe

African Union Repeats Call For The Lifting Of Sanctions Against Zimbabwe

The African Union has repeated its call for the lifting of Western-imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe at the UN General Assembly.

Speaking at the 77th Ordinary Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal and Acting President of the African Union, said the sanctions have worsened the suffering of Zimbabweans. He said:

… the African Union calls, once again, for the lifting of foreign sanctions against Zimbabwe.

These severe measures continue to feed a feeling of injustice against an entire people and aggravate their suffering in these times of deep crisis.

Last week the United States of America announced the removal of 11 individuals from the Zimbabwe sanctions list.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), however, designated one Zimbabwe individual on the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN List) under the Zimbabwe sanctions program.

The US Treasury said sanctions do not target the Zimbabwean people, the country of Zimbabwe, or Zimbabwe’s banking sector.

It said the sanctions program targets human rights abusers and those who undermine democratic processes or facilitate corruption.

I find it amusing that these geriatric dictators stand by each other. None of the AU Leaders who Champion the removal of sanctions have first hand experience of whars happening in Zimbabwe. They depend on what ED and his minions tell them at this talk shops in Addis Ababa.

For example this Senegalese clown has never been to Zimbabwe, has never interrogated either credible opposition or civic groups operating on the ground in Zimbabwe.

The good thing though is that no matter how much they bark, their ability change heats on the ground is a big fat ZERO. ZILCH.

While I appreciate that AU has joined South Africa in calling for the removal of sanctions, I want to quickly advise the same that they should start with encouraging His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa to stop corruption in the country, stop Human Rights abuses, practise democracy, stop judiciary capture and practise the rule of law.

If they want to kill a snake, they should start by hitting the head insteady of start by hitting the tail.
