United States Extends Sanctions On Zimbabwe

United States Extends Sanctions On Zimbabwe

United States of America President, Joe Biden, has with immediate effect, extended by another year the sanctions initially imposed on Zimbabwe on 6 March 2003, by Executive Order 13288. A statement released by the White House this Thursday reads:

On March 6, 2003, by Executive Order 13288, the President declared a national emergency and blocked the property of certain persons, pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706), to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons to undermine Zimbabwe’s democratic processes or institutions.

These actions and policies had contributed to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of law in Zimbabwe, to politically motivated violence and intimidation in that country, and to political and economic instability in the southern African region.

On November 22, 2005, the President issued Executive Order 13391 to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13288 by ordering the blocking of the property of additional persons undermining democratic processes or institutions in Zimbabwe.

On July 25, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 13469, which expanded the scope of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13288 and authorized the blocking of the property of additional persons undermining democratic processes or institutions in Zimbabwe.

The actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons to undermine Zimbabwe’s democratic processes or institutions continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States.

For this reason, the national emergency declared on March 6, 2003, and the measures adopted on that date, on November 22, 2005, and on July 25, 2008, to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond March 6, 2022.

Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13288.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

Let's not blame USA for these sanctions. It's meant kuAffecter ana E.D but vakaramba varipachigaro, it affects us futi. Zviri funny ndezvekuti, masanctions aripo kudarl instead kuti ana E.D vanakise nyika vanototanga kuuraya vanhu kuma Rally, nekuLooter, nekuTora maCompany. Hanzi "Zimbabwe is open for business", nhasi yava hatinei nevarungu "nyika inovakwa nevene vayo". Ko kana vene vayo vasina mabasa toita sei? Tovaka zvidhina everyday here. Imi life iyi inorwadza, hapana kana zvenyika apa. I'm not advocating for sanctions but sometimes ka it's good. USA should help us oust Zanu PF and E.D because it's been 42 years of suffering. Munhu anotozvarwa akafa ka tichitambura. Kana maTeacher achinzi they will be paid according to qualifications ndopaunoona kuti nyika hapana. Chero ukaita 17 ma PhD uchidzidzisa maECD hanti unongovadzidzisa zvimwe chete ne ane 1 pHD. It's not like uchavadzidzisa Pythagoras Theorem ka. This is a cursed country. E.d and Zanu PF have cursed this country, kusaguta. Fucking ****

This is the result of Zimbabwe showing support of Russia. America's new foreign policy involves not being friendly to states that have a record of not voting in their favour at the UN

TO THOSE WHO THINK USA SANCTIONS ON ZIMBABWE ARE TARGETING INDIVIDUALS ESPECIALLY POLITICAL ELITES, YOU GOT IT ALL WRONG. DO YOU KNOW THAT ZESA,BANKING SECTOR, IN SHORT ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE ECONOMY GROWTH IS UNDER SANCTIONS. I'M NOT ADVOCATING FOR THESE GUYS LOOTING FROM THE STATE BUT WHEN YOU LOOK FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE YOU WILL SEE TWO THINGS THAT ARE BRINGING US DOWN TO DUST. (1)CORRUPTION (2) SANCTIONS. IN THE BANKING SECTOR I'M FAMILIAR WITH STANDARD CHARTERED BANK AND CBZ, SOMETIME IN 2018 THEY WERE FINED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS BY AMERICA BECAUSE THEY HAD APPROVED TRANSACTIONS THAT WERE ABOVE THE LIMIT IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA. HOW DO THOSE LIMITATIONS AFFECT OUR ECONOMY? GO FIND OUT YOURSELVES. SANCTIONS ON ZESA...NO WESTERN COUNTRY OR THEIR ALLIES ARE ALLOWED TO EXPORT ANYTHING TO ZESA, HOW IS IT AFFECTING OUR INDUSTRIAL ECONOMY? PRODUCTION LEVELS ARE VERY LOW DUE TO POWER SHORTAGES. THEN LASTLY, WE ARE ALL UNDER SANCTIONS...TRY BUYING SOMETHING FROM USA AND YOU WILL GET YOUR ANSWER. THESE GUYS NEVER LOVED US WILL NEVER LOVE US. STOP SUPPORTING AMERICA BUT ADVOCATE FOR YOUR RIGHTS AS ZIMBABWEANS. THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, SO ITS OUR MANDATE TO TRANSFORM IT NOT THE AMERICANS OR ANY WESTERN COUNTRY. GREAT DAY TO YOU ALL

The moment ED and cronies refuse to step down because of sanctions implicated on them that was my wake up call that they are not willing to sacrifice their pride for the good of the country. Citing silly excuses and alternate reasons for sanctions will not sanitize the lie. The truth stands forever and as long as they are in power abusing innocent people sanctions will never go anywhere. The ruling party never cared about Zimbabweans and they wont start caring now, the moment the party stops acting like sheeple and deal with every single corrupt individual that will be the end of sanctions

@Chief. The only company left on the sanctions list is Zimbabwe Defence Industries.

In the case of ZESA as you quoted, is the USA the only source of equipment? I know for sure at some stage a large number of transformers were imported from EFACEC in Portugal and Hawker Siddley/South Wales Electric (a local indigenous company) could manufacture and service transformers and any electrical equipment ZESA requires.

But ZESA had payment problems with Hawker Siddley/South Wales Electric

Saka please don't tell us hogwash about sanctions

Read ZIDERA legislation and then we can debate US sanctions knowlegeably
