South Africa Reiterates Position On Zimbabwe Sanctions

South Africa Reiterates Position On Zimbabwe Sanctions

South Africa has reiterated its call to have unilateral sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe removed.

In a speech at the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, SA Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Naledi Pandor said the sanctions against Zimbabwe affect the entire Southern African region. She said:

South Africa calls for an end to the embargo against Cuba, which continues to impede the right to development of her people.

In the same vein, we call for an end to unilateral coercive measures against Zimbabwe, which have compounded the problems experienced by the people of Zimbabwe and have a detrimental effect on the broader Southern African region.

Last week, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa told US President Joe Biden that the measures against Zimbabwe had weakened the country’s economy pushing Zimbabweans to migrate to neighbouring countries. | The Sunday Mail

Don't be misinformed, we are against sanctions. Tinoda kudyawo liver, bacon and eggs. Real sanctions which must go where imposed by ZanuPF to the citizens of Zimbabwe

We are suffering because Tagwireyi is getting corruptly got tenders and forx from the RBZ. Billy Rautenbach is getting a legalised monopoly in 20% of fuel distributed in the whole country.

Because the government is trampling on the Himan rights of its citizens. Lawfare against Sikhala and Sithole for example. Elections are not free and fair. Army shoots unarmed people demonstrating, which is their Constitutional right.

Opposition parties are hassled at every turn. There is shrinking democratic space. Civic society is threatened every day

Need we go on ad nauseam?

We know that sadc is benefiting from the current zim situation as seen by number of countries who want Zim teachers not to mention all the labour force & as much as we know u're avoiding the talk of reforms which is the key issue not sanctions

Taura hako. Other countries are benefiting from our sanctions situation. They benefit from cheap labour from our highly skilled migrants.

African brotherhood or Pan Africanism is what it is ; a conspiracy of evil ,rougue and corrupt government's . Zimbabwe has suffered more from corruption and misrule , not the so called sanctions . Ian Smith overrode the war sanctions, and industrialised . But instead our black kins are buying luxury villas abroad . You can't hide anymore behind this sanctions mantra , wait and see .
