The African Union Commission (AU) has reiterated its demand for the immediate and unconditional removal of sanctions imposed against the Republic of Zimbabwe, and in support of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) commemoration of SADC Anti-Sanctions Day.
The Chairperson of the Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat in a statement on Wednesday said he remains concerned by the negative impact of continued sanctions against the Republic of Zimbabwe to the country’s socio-economic development and recovery efforts.
He reaffirmed the commitment of the African Union to continue working closely with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to support all regional efforts, and “in this regard, the African Union associates itself fully with the statement issued by President Lazarus Chakwera, President of the Republic of Malawi and current Chairperson of SADC”, he said.
