COVID-19 Crisis Is the Time to Ease Sanctions on Zimbabwe - UN

The United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has called for the lifting of sanctions on all countries, including Zimbabwe,  in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Guterres made the call in his letter to the G-20 member countries arguing that the move would allow for the access essential medical material required to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier, the U.S. renewed sanctions against President Emmerson Mnangagwa's administration on accusations of human rights violations and the undermining of the democratic process.
