Ed courts Africa’s vote on sanctions
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.
