U.S. Imposes Sanctions On 'Notoriously Corrupt' Mnangagwa Ally

The U.S. government has slapped targeted sanctions on Sakunda Holdings CEO Kudakwashe Tagwirei, accusing the business mogul of being part of a closely-knit ring of elites stunting Zimbabwe's economic growth prospects through corruption. The move is "to mark the anniversary" of six protesters killed two years ago, State Secretary Mike Pompeo has said. The victims are yet to get justice, despite a commission of inquiry into the August 1 violence led by former South African president Kgalema Motlanthe.
