WATCH LIVE as Gambakwe Media at the recent developments around the Zimbabwe sanctions.
In today’s episode, we are joined by Tinashe Jonas to look at the statement by USA Ambassador to the UN , Linda Thomas Greenfield on the sanctions in Zimbabwe.
Responding to questions on Douhan’s preliminary report, presented last Thursday to journalists in Harare after her 10-day visit to Zimbabwe, Thomas-Greenfield said the US will always resist any such criticism.
Thomas-Greenfield was speaking during a digital press briefing hosted by the US Africa Regional Media Hub.
She said the deteriorating situation in Zimbabwe was not because of sanctions imposed on select individuals and companies, but poor administration and human rights violations.
