Existing United States sanctions on Zimbabwe in place since 2003 have been extended for another 12 months.
US President, Donald Trump says the southern African nation poses an “unusual and extraordinary” threat to US foreign policy.
He blamed President, Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government for failing to implement the “political and economic service required to rebuild its reputation”.
The US president also said on Monday that Zimbabwe’s 2018 election wasn’t “fully free and fair”.
Last month, there were violent protests in Zimbabwe after a sharp increase in fuel price.
President of neighbouring South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, has recently called on the international community to lift the sanctions.
