President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday called for the removal of Western sanctions on his government during a speech🔊 to ruling party officials and said elections due in 2018 were nearer than “you expect”.

While the European Union removed sanctions on ZANU-PF officials, members of the military and some government-owned firms in 2014, the United States🇺🇸 has kept a travel and economic embargo on several ruling party elites.

“We call for the unconditional lifting of the political and economic sanctions, which have crippled our 🇿🇼national development,” Mnangagwa told a meeting of the ZANU-PF central committee in downtown Harare.

“We realise that isolation is not splendid or viable as there is more to gain through solidarity, mutually beneficial 🤝partnerships.”

The international community will be closely watching the next elections in 2018, which Mnangagwa said🗣 would be free and fair and would be held nearer than most people expect.
