The Namibian government on Thursday endorsed the engagement of local stakeholders to come up with measures to push the lifting of economic embargo against Zimbabwe.

This follows the setting aside of October 25 by the last Southern African Development Community (SADC) heads of state meeting in Tanzania, to have all member states voice support for the lifting of sanctions against Zimbabwe.


The Namibian government announced through a post cabinet brief that it is in support of the anti-sanctions campaign against Zimbabwe as a measure to show solidarity to one of SADC member states.

“Cabinet took note of the report on the 39th SADC summit heads of state and government and directed the following offices to take action in their areas of responsibility. Ministry of International Relations must engage local stakeholders on the strategy to be employed by Namibia to amplify the call for the lifting of sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by October 25 as endorsed by the SADC summit,” said the cabinet brief in part.

Zimbabwe was slapped with both economic sanctions and travel restrictions for the ruling elite by the United States through the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act in 2001 and the European Union also joined in with their own version of restrictions. Enditem
