SADC Urges International Community to Lift Sanctions on Zimbabwe

Southern African leaders have decided to collectively voice their disapproval of continuing sanctions against Zimbabwe. This emerged from a SADC summit in Tanzania, where incoming chairperson and Tanzania's President John Magufuli said the region should unite to support Zimbabwe since the sanctions, imposed over alleged human-rights abuses during the rule of former president Robert Mugabe, are still in place despite a democratic change of leadership.
