The president of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa has slammed US President, Donald Trump for his maladministration over democracy after placing the country on economic sanction over their democracy.
He stated that the violent scenario that happened at Capitol Hill showed that the U.S. has no moral right to punish another nation under the guise of upholding democracy. These sanctions must end.
“Last year, President Trump extended painful economic sanctions placed on Zimbabwe, citing concerns about Zimbabwe’s democracy.
“Yesterday’s events showed that the U.S. has no moral right to punish another nation under the guise of upholding democracy. These sanctions must end.”
It was reported that President Trump once extended one-year sanctions against Zimbabwe saying that the new government’s policies continue to pose an “unusual and extraordinary” threat to U.S. foreign policy.
Mnangagwa further congratulated President-elect Joe Biden over his affirmation as the next U.S. president, saying Zimbabwe is ready to work in agreement with America under his administration.
“Zimbabwe is, as it always has been, ready to work together as friends and partners with the U.S. for the benefit of both our peoples.”
President Donald Trump had consistently claimed that he won the election and had urged Pence to help him upturn the election, an action believed to have spurred his supporters to invade the Capitol Hill Building on Wednesday.
