JOHANNESBURG – Zimbabwe’s ambassador to South Africa, Isaac Moyo says Zimbabwe has been going through a difficult time in the last 15 years.
The economic challenges facing the country hit by drought and a drop in mineral prices have been compounded by the political tensions in Zimbabwe.
But Moyo says the country has suffered sanctions and this has crippled the economy. And what is happening in the country now is as a result of the sanctions.
“The sanctions have affected people badly and the government has been working to rectify the situation with no help from anybody,” says Moyo.
The sanctions were as a result of the bold measures taken by government to address the land reform issues, he says. “Right now the government has put together an economic framework among other things to address the issues facing the country.”
“So the government is confident that through a series of interventions put in place, it will be able address the issues facing the country,” adds Moyo.
