    In an interview with the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) on the sidelines of the 38th Sadc summit in Windhoek, over the weekend, President Mnangagwa said besides the US, there were several other countries in the world co-operating with Zimbabwe.

    “If we are going to cry because some capital elsewhere is imposing sanctions, then we will fail our nation,” he said when asked about the illegal economic embargo.

    President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe will fully utilise its resources for economic prosperity.

    “We must look at the resources which we have and utilise those resources that we have to the maximum for the benefit of our country,” he said.

    “Number two, we are enjoying support from Sadc and we must co-operate with Sadc. Number three, we enjoy support from the AU. Again we must exploit that support from the continent and succeed. Number four, we enjoy support from other countries other than America.”

    It doesn't look like he is in a world of hurt.

    Zimbabwe? The country where a wheel-barrow of currency is required to buy a loaf of bread? Naww. No sleep lost over steel and aluminum tariffs for all steel and aluminium that his country NEVER has exported.

    WTF is this desperation over finding CREDIBLE critics of US trade negotiating? Maybe they should go to Nepal for their next comment on trade balancing.

    Zimbabwe......It's Mnangagwa's response to the ZIDERA extension. That's all.


    It's not from a US paper.
