Mnangagwa still under US sanctions
Published: 24 November 2017
Zimbabwe's incoming leader remains under United States sanctions for his activities as Robert Mugabe's deputy and enforcer.

Emmerson Mnangagwa, who will be sworn in on Friday, was sanctioned in response to what the U.S. called acts "to undermine Zimbabwe's democratic processes or institutions" and "acts of violence and other human rights abuses against political opponents."

Mnangagwa was accused of leading a violent crackdown on opponents in the 2008 presidential election.

He has vowed a "new, unfolding democracy" in Zimbabwe after Mugabe's resignation under military and ruling party pressure.
