Obama extends sanctions on Zim as UK softens

The US has reportedly extended sanctions on Zimbabwe by another year arguing that President Robert Mugabe and his cronies continue to undermine the country’s democratic processes.

Bloemfontein - The ANC and Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF party were comrades-in-arms, Zanu-PF chairperson Simon Khaya Moyo said at the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung on Tuesday.

"We have a common liberation history and culture. We are one," he said delivering his party's message of support after the announcement of the ANC's leadership election results.

He congratulated the party's newly-elected top six leaders.

The ANC and Zanu-PF had an "impeccable" record of liberation.

"The two parties successfully led the demolition of apartheid in both Zimbabwe and South Africa," he said.

Meanwhile Mozambique’s ruling party, Frelimo, has urged the ANC and all liberation movements on the continent to work on preserving their liberation ties.

"We have a duty to preserve the record and ties of the liberation movement across the continent. That is very important," Ida Libongo said in her party’s message of support.

She praised the ANC for leading the liberation movement on the continent.
