Mnangagwa Setback as U.S. Renews Sanctions on Zimbabwe

U.S. President Donald Trump has signed into law a bill setting out tough conditions for lifting sanctions against Zimbabwe. It effectively tightens the noose on President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government and dampens hopes of re-engagement to jumpstart the country's free-falling economy. The U.S. had indicated it would evaluate its foreign policy on Zimbabwe after the holding of free, fair and credible elections.
