Zanu PF party has saluted South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for boldly engaging Unites States President Joe Biden on the need to unconditionally remove the illegal economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.
President Ramaphosa recently engaged American President Biden on the negative impact of the illegal sanctions imposed through ZIDERA, telling Biden that the illegal embargo has affected not only Zimbabwe, but the entire SADC region.
Briefing journalists at the party headquarters in Harare this Tuesday, ZANU PF Secretary for Information and Publicity, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa applauded the stance taken by President Ramaphosa.
“We applaud the bold stance by SA President Cyril Ramaphosa when he met Joe Biden (US President). It was good to hear it from our powerful regional neighbour. Sanctions against Zimbabwe are damaging growth prospects. Sanctions on Zimbabwe have negatively affected the region as they were meant for regime change, which they see is no longer possible,” he said.
Ambassador Mutsvangwa noted that the Americans, who have failed to effect regime change in Zimbabwe, are now focusing on the 2023 harmonised elections.
“After realising that their prospects of having their candidate win in Kenya, Americans sneaked into the country but they were chucked out via Zambia,” he said.
He commended the Second Republic for transforming the economy in the last four years.
“We hail what the President has done in the economy, introducing the primacy of the RBZ, young men on the streets have disappeared. The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development is doing a good job dealing with contractors who were at the core of creating fictitious figures on the market,” he said.
Zimbabwe has scored huge successes in infrastructure development and food security despite carrying the burden of the illegal economic sanctions for the past 22 years.
