Sanctions Are Only Targeting 84 Corrupt Individual & Human Rights Abusers: The US Speaks Out
The United States government has strenuously denied accusations that it is targeting the general people of Zimbabwe through its sanctions.
The local US Embassy clarified that it was only targeting individuals and companies which are involved in corruption and Human Rights abuses. This comes at a time when the United States has been under attack from the government and the ruling Zanu-PF following US President Donald Trump’s decision to extend sanctions on Zimbabwe.
Writing on its social media accounts, the US Embassy said,
The U.S. does not maintain comprehensive sanctions against Zimbabwe. Suggestions that the U.S. intends to harm the Zimbabwean people with sanctions are false and misleading.
The U.S. targeted sanctions list: 84 individuals and 56 entities. People of Zimbabwe: 16 million +. Sanctions do not target the people of Zimbabwe.
U.S. targets sanctions on those who engage in corruption, violate human rights or undermine democratic institutions, not the people of Zimbabwe.
