Quick thread 🔥
1/ Days ago, Mzaya @daddyhope asked me y I had changed my 2016 view on US sanctions. I told him I did more research & met Andrew Young in 2017 in Atlanta. I told @denvern3 same in 2018!
@KMutisi @vargoe21 @weldon_dott @misscailah @JMangoya @Busisa74 @JMoyo4
2/ I am reposting this because Mutisi, @weldon_dott & others have shared clips of Andrew Young in explaining the land question on Zim.
I met with Mayor Andrew Young in 2017 to talk about pvt equity in Africa in Atlanta Georgia in 2017.
@Auzqn @ShingiMunyeza @nigelchanakira
3/ There is no1 more qualified to talk about Lancaster Hse negotiations & Zimbabwe’s land issue than Andrew Young. He was US Ambassador to the UN under Jimmy Carter from 1978-79 right thru the Lancaster House talks. He was actively involved in the matter for the US @garweh2011
4/ Young isn’t only credible bcoz he was US’s UN Ambassador at the time. He was also Martin Luther King Jr’s contemporary & executive assistant. He was there when King made those famous civil rights speeches, fighting racist oppressors @daddyhope @cdesetfree @Mavhure @xandatoto
5/ UK & US are running away from land commitments since that time Tony Blair reneged! The US sanctions and the clauses on land are designed to twist the commitments they made back to ordinary Zimbabweans by using recent SADC tribunal judgments to bury Lancaster Hse commitments!
6/ Andrew Young’s love for Southern Africa & Zim far exceeds the love some Zimbabweans have for their own country.

He told me his fund helped finance Strive Masiyiwa & Econet. He also funded @nigelchanakira Kingdom - confirm Nigel?

7/ Based on this, no Zimbabwean must pay anything to white farmers for land. UK & US must pay them. They have an obligation.

Mugabe was right on land!
@lilomatic @nyashaneta @DrNkuSibanda @JMangoya @VusiNyamazana @Busisa74 @GraceMutandwa1 @RMajongwe @dudumo @Mathuthu @zenzele
8/ So my 2016 view of sanctions changed in 2017 after speaking to a Martin Luther King contemporary.

Then I saw these muppets in DC testifying against their own country weeks after talking to Andrew Young & I was livid👇🏽
9/ So this is the background to why I changed my view on sanctions. New Information!

The economic logic will be in my sanctions thread!
