Remove Sanctions Now, Mwonzora Tells Western Powers

MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora has called for the immediate, unconditional removal of economic sanctions imposed on the country by the United States and her allies at the turn of the Millenium.

Addressing a Press conference in Harare on Friday, Mwonzora said there was no justification for the maintenance of the sanctions as they had inflicted untold suffering on ordinary people.

He said:

Our position as the MDC-T is that we support the international re-engagement of Zimbabwe with the international community. Zimbabweans must actively participate to ensure that these measures are removed.

We have been under sanctions for over two decades, the lives of the Zimbabwean people have not improved, the economic system has not improved, the social system has not improved, therefore we think that the sanctions are not working.

The United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe soon after the country compulsorily acquired farms from white farmers and distributed the land to thousands of black families.
