US Sanctions Not Meant To Harm Ordinary Zimbabweans

In an interview with the Zimbabwe Independent, US embassy spokesperson Stacy Lomba dismissed the argument that sanctions only harden regimes and ruin the lives of citizens instead of those targeted.

Lomba said the United States does not mean to harm Zimbabweans through sanctions targeting Zanu-PF officials. Said Lomba:

This renewal of the national emergency does not add any new names. There are currently 85 individuals and 56 entities on the targeted sanctions list for Zimbabwe. The targeted sanctions list is public information, provided by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (Ofac) of the US Department of Treasury. We do not have a sanctions programme against the country of Zimbabwe and suggestions that the US intends to harm the Zimbabwean people are wrong and misleading.
