THE United States of America has terminated some sanctions against Zimbabwe through an executive order, though eleven individuals and three companies remain on sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Act of 2016.

The United States of America through President Joe Biden has removed some sanctions on Zimbabwe.

In a statement, the US Department of Treasury said all property and interests in property blocked solely pursuant to the Zimbabwe Sanctions Programme will be unlocked this Monday.

“OFAC will remove the Zimbabwe Sanctions regulations from the Code of Federal Regulations,” reads the statement.

According to the statement, ZDERA however remains law, meaning several Zimbabweans and some companies remain on the sanctions list.

Three companies that are still on the list are Sakunda Holdings, Fossil Agro and Fossil Contracting.
