Kenya demands end of Western sanctions against Zimbabwe

Nairobi, March 9 (Prensa Latina) The President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, asked Western powers to lift the economic sanctions imposed against Zimbabwe since 2003, the capitalfm website reported.

After receiving his Zimbabwean counterpart, Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is making a three-day state visit, Kenyatta said that in the face of such a situation, he is committed to leading global efforts to eradicate these measures.

“We continue to insist on our determination to continue our strong support for Harare against unilateral sanctions, which cause problems for the people of Zimbabwe,” he stressed.

For his part, President Mnangagwa explained that Western countries, led by the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union, penalized his country economically after the authorities applied an agrarian reform program to benefit the poorest, disfavoring white settlers.

Washington and its allies had argued that the restrictions imposed are prolonged since there is no progress in the country in democratic reforms and human rights, among other issues. Organizations such as the African Union have repeatedly warned that punitive Western provisions, which include the financial sector, undermine Zimbabwe’s ability to respond to socio-economic challenges and the impact of Covid-19.

According to the agenda of the state visit, Mnangagwa plans to sign bilateral cooperation agreements with his Kenyan counterpart in various spheres, including trade, tourism and social services, The Herald newspaper reported on Wednesday.
