PRES­I­DENT Mnan­gagwa was in Con­akry, Guinea for a two-day visit at the in­vi­ta­tion of Pres­i­dent Al­pha Cond’e where he used the oc­ca­sion to ap­peal for African sup­port in Zim­babwe’s ef­forts to re-en­gage the West and end eco­nomic sanc­tions on the coun­try.

Zim­babwe is un­der il­le­gal Western sanc­tions which have hurt the econ­omy for nearly 20 years.

Brief­ing jour­nal­ists, Pres­i­den­tial spokesper­son and Deputy Chief Sec­re­tary (Pres­i­den­tial Com­mu­ni­ca­tions) Mr Ge­orge Charamba said the trip here was crit­i­cal for Zim­babwe’s cause for the re­moval of sanc­tions.

“We are con­sol­i­dat­ing African sup­port to­wards our re-en­gage­ment with the Western world where we must make sure that all the sub-re­gions of Africa are solidly be­hind Zim­babwe in its ef­forts to break sanc­tions as well as achieve some rap­port with the West,” said Mr Charamba.
