Zanu Pf demand that MDC remove sanctions

ZIMBABWE – HARARE – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s party demanded on Friday that the MDC party seek removal of the Western sanctions on Mugabe and his allies, The Zimbabwe Telegraphreports.

“The MDC, which urged its international supporters to impose the illegal sanctions, has the sole responsibility to ensure that its international supporters remove the sanctions forthwith,” Zanu-PF deputy secretary for information Ephraim Masawi told journalists.

Masawi said Zanu-PF had delivered its part of a “global political agreement” which paved the way to the power-sharing government, but Tsvangirai’s party earlier raised objections to some recent appointments.

MDC wants the appointment of the central bank governor, the attorney general and 10 provincial governors to be reviewed and has referred the issue to the regional Southern African Development Community grouping for mediation.

“The outstanding issues have been the Achilles Heel of the inclusive government,” the MDC said, referring to the appointments and expressing its frustration with the pace of reforms.

A the September Global political Agreement between Mugabe, Tsvangirai and Professor Arthur Mutambara, appointment of all senior government officials should be agreed among the three leaders.

The unity government has functioned better than many observers believed possible, but friction points remain.

Zimbabwe faces an uphill battle to raise $8.3bn for reconstruction.

Direct financial support from Western donors remains elusive despite the best efforts of Tsvangirai, highly regarded in the West for standing up to Mugabe.
