US Raises New Hurdles to Re-engagement

The United States government has proposed multiple prescriptive reforms as a precondition for re-engagement with Zimbabwe’s new administration led by President Mnangagwa.

Two US senators — Messrs Jeff Flake(Republican) and Chris Coons (Democrat) — who are members of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Thursday unveiled a proposed revised version of the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act (ZDERA) of 2001.

But commentators yesterday indicated the new conditions, particularly on elections, were eerily similar to demands made by the MDC Alliance through its Plan and Environment for A Credible Election (PEACE) document that was launched by its presidential candidate Mr Nelson Chamisa on Wednesday.
