Sekeramayi blasts EU over targeted sanctions

THE STATE SECURITY minister Sidney Sekeramayi yesterday blasted the European Union (EU) for maintaining targeted sanctions on service chiefs, saying this was a move meant to create conflict and disunity in Zanu PF.

Speaking on the sidelines of the handover ceremony of a jetpatcher machine to fill potholes by Zimbabwe National Road Authority (Zinara) to the Local Government ministry, Sekeramayi said the EU had an ulterior motive.

“The reason is they want to create conflict and disunity among the political leadership. When you create that, you are sowing seeds of instability. That is why they have decided to leave the command element on the sanctions list,” he said.

Early this week, 81 Zanu PF officials and eight companies were removed from the sanctions list while 10, including President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, remained.

Others still on the list include Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa, Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander General Constantine Chiwenga, Zimbabwe National Army commander Lieutenant-General Phillip Valerio Sibanda, Air Force of Zimbabwe commander Air Marshal Perrance Shiri, Zimbabwe National Army chief of staff Major-General Douglas Nyikayaramba, Police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri, Central Intelligence Organisation Director-General Happyton Bonyongwe and Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association chairman Jabulani Sibanda.

Zinara handed over a jet patcher worth $250 000 to Harare City Council to seal potholes that have become a menace to motorists in the country.

Transport Communication and Infrastructural Development minister Nicholas Goche said the machine was purchased by Zinara on behalf of the city council.
