The rise to power …

Beyond Tsholotsho and Chiyangwa


WHILE the media have diligently covered the story of Zimbabwe’s Information Minister, Jonathan Moyo’s dwindling political fortunes following the ill-fated Tsholotsho meeting, the tone and line of reporting have generally tended to weigh down or ignore the real crux of the matter.

A much deeper analysis tracking the advent of “Tsholotsho” down to President Mugabe’s quarrelsome brand of politics and to his corrosive hold on the Zimbabwean body politic is evidently lacking, consequently handing the Zimbabwean ruler Mugabe unintended kudos in the process.

Executive Order – Blocking Property of Additional Persons Undermining Democratic Processes or Institutions in Zimbabwe

What You Need To Know About U.S. Sanctions

INTRODUCTION – On March 7, 2003, as a result of actions and policies by certain members of the government of Zimbabwe, and its supporters to undermine democratic institutions and processes in Zimbabwe, President Bush issued Executive Order 13288 imposing sanctions against specifically identified individuals and entities in Zimbabwe. On November 23, 2005, the President issued a new Executive Order superseding E.O. 13288. The new Executive Order expands the list of sanctions targets to include immediate family members of any designated individual of the Zimbabwe sanctions, as well as those persons providing assistance to any sanctions target. Providing statutory authority for these sanctions is the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”), the National Emergencies Act and sections 301 of title 3 of the United States Code.

This fact sheet provides general information about the Zimbabwe sanctions program imposed by the new Executive Order and administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”).

A Bulletin from the Office of Foreign Assets Control, November 23, 2005.

A new Executive Order, BLOCKING PROPERTY OF ADDITIONAL PERSONS UNDERMINING DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES OR INSTITUTIONS IN ZIMBABWE, has been issued recertifying some of the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) previously designated under the Zimbabwe program. All of these recertified names will appear as changes in OFAC’s SDN Changes files. However, not all of these recertified names have actually changed.
