    The Chairperson of the African Union Commission calls for the lifting of economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe

    Addis Ababa, 25 October 2019: The Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki calls for the immediate removal of sanctions imposed on the Republic of Zimbabwe in continuity of his call during his visit to Zimbabwe from 18-20 February 2018, and in support of today's communiqué of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) on this issue.

    The Chairperson reiterates his concerns that the persistence of economic sanctions imposed by the international community, continue to have negative impact  on the economy and the people of Zimbabwe. In this regard, he expressed his determination and that of the various relevant Organs of the Union to continue to mobilize support for the country’s recovery efforts.
