Kagame Joins AU in Call to Lift Sanctions on Sudan, Zimbabwe

Rwandan President Paul Kagame has called for the lifting of sanctions against Zimbabwe and Sudan as both countries struggle to cope with the economic and social impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The two nations still face some U.S. restrictions, complicating attempts to get the debt relief that all African countries are seeking. Meanwhile, AU Chairperson President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken the fight to G20 countries, the International Monetary Fund, and World Bank among other international organisations.
