Britain Reiterates It Has No Sanctions On Zimbabwe

Britain Reiterates It Has No Sanctions On Zimbabwe

The UK government on Friday reiterated its stance that it had no sanctions on Zimbabwe but on five individuals responsible for egregious human rights violations and corruption.

Responding to a question from Navendu Mishra who wanted to know what the impact of UK sanctions had on Zimbabwe’s healthcare and energy security, the UK Minister of State in the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, Andrew Mitchell, said:

The UK does not have economic sanctions on Zimbabwe. The UK has targeted sanctions on five Zimbabwean individuals to hold them to account for serious human rights violations and corruption.

These sanctions do not target, and specifically seek to avoid impact on, the wider economy and the people of Zimbabwe.

Therefore we assess that UK sanctions do not impact the healthcare sector or energy security in Zimbabwe.

The four individuals on the UK sanctions list on Zimbabwe are:

  • Intelligence boss Isaac Moyo
  • Police chief Godwin Matanga
  • Former security minister Owen Ncube, and
  • Zimbabwe ambassador to Tanzania Anselem Sanyatwe.

There is only one Zimbabwean institution on the UK sanctions list, and that is the Zimbabwe Defence Industries. | The Insider

We the people already know this. We are not suffering from sangishens. We are suffering the result of a rigged election and a corrupt government. So the UK is just reiterating what we already know.

You see now Zanu Pf or this regime has got a tendency of telling lies over and over again until you think it's the truth They lie about sanctions they lie about recolonisation until the gullible start thinking it's the truth This government is rotten to the core but they only talk about corruption once in a while Ramaphosa and company are now also singing the boring Zanu Pf sanctions song instead of addressing the real issues affecting this country Until and unless the real issues are addressed things will get worse in our beloved country
