DA to announce party’s next steps to resolve #Zimbabwe crisis

Johannesburg – Democratic Alliance (DA) says its leader, Mmusi Maimane, will on Monday announce a “set of immediate interventions” it will pursue in order to resolve the crisis occurring in Zimbabwe.

“Despite concerted pressure from the DA, President Ramaphosa and his government have failed to show leadership and intervene in what has now become a humanitarian crisis. It is vital that stability is restored in Zimbabwe and in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region,” said the DA in a statement issued ahead of the announcement.

“To date, Ramaphosa has simply called for the end to sanctions against Zimbabwe. The president is mistaken to focus solely on the economic situation in Zimbabwe whilst turning a blind eye to the dictator-like military clampdown on citizens which has to date claimed the lives of at least 12 people.”
