Khama wants Zimbabwe sanctions lifted but…

Botswana President Ian Khama today said that he wants sanctions against Zimbabwe to be lifted to deny ZANU-PF the “lame excuse” it uses to undermine the unity government formed with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC.   “Contrary to the recent misleading media reports that we have changed our position on the imposition of sanctions on Zimbabwe, the position of Botswana has been consistent with the earlier decisions of SADC mentioned above, which we are party to,” Khama said.
