star this property answer text <p>The UK’s focus in responding to Cyclone Idai in Zimbabwe is on providing essential health supplies, hygiene kits and child protection support. We continue to monitor the situation closely and stand ready to provide further support as needed. The EU retains sanctions against former President Robert Mugabe, his wife Grace Mugabe, and the company Zimbabwe Defence Industries. We consider that sanctions have been an appropriate response to the political violence of the last 15 years. They do no damage to the wider economy or to the people of Zimbabwe and have no impact on the UK’s relief effort.</p> more like this

We continue to call for the immediate release of those detained, for them to be treated in accordance with international standards and for the government to respect the rights of the Sudanese people. The Minister for Africa most recently raised our concerns with the Foreign Minister of Sudan on 13 March including our outrage at the sentencing of young women to flogging, which we are pleased to hear has been overturned. The British Ambassador in Khartoum has also raised our concern over the detention of protesters on a number of occasions and the Sudanese Ambassador to the UK was summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 7 March.</p> more like this
