The US is bullying Zimbabwe with illegal economic measures that impact the entire country. The US may claim its sanctions are merely about targeting individuals linked to corruption, but the real motivation has always been to cripple Zimbabwe’s economy and crush its independent domestic and foreign policy, until the country’s government is forced to serve US desires and interests.
Years of corrupt and incompetent policies and mismanagement are responsible for Zimbabwe’s economic woes, not US sanctions. US sanctions target corrupt individuals and entities, and those responsible for human rights violations and undermining democracy. Although they may admittedly cause some additional economic damage, most of Zimbabwe’s problems stem from the country’s autonomous governance.
