Washingtons support is key if Zimbabwe is to get any funding from the International Monetary Fund.
The United States of America has maintained travel and financial sanctions on Zimbabwes senior ruling party officials, including President Emmerson Mnangagwa, as well as some state-owned firms. Washingtons support is key if Zimbabwe is to get any funding from the International Monetary Fund. The European Union, on the other hand has progressively removed sanctions and they only remain in place on long time leader Mugabe and his wife Grace. Hours before Mnangagwas inauguration on Sunday, the International Republican Institute and National Democratic Institute said the Southern African nation lacked a tolerant democratic culture in which political parties were treated equally and citizens allowed to vote freely.
