Zimbabwe anger over US sanctions on ex-commander

Written by on August 3, 2019

Zimbabwe has accused the US of fanning divisions after travel sanctions were imposed on its ambassador to Tanzania, an ex-presidential guard who allegedly commanded troops who killed six civilians in a post-election protest last year.

Anselem Sanyatwe is the first Zimbabwean official to be put on the US sanctions list since Robert Mugabe was forced to step down as president in November 2017. The diplomat and his wife are now barred from travelling to the US.
