hello i'm kristie wonderwall come to africa it's good to have you along thousands of people marched across zimbabwe today against u.s. and e.u. sanctions on the country those taking pause and the government backed him astray should say the sanctions have crippled the economy by the way that economy is in deep crisis the i.m.f. reported inflation in august reach 300 percent and it's predicted some always economy will shrink by 3 percent this year. but both the e.u. and the u.s. say the sanctions they've imposed on zimbabwe did not target the economy and entre sponsible for the country's problems here's a quote from an african affairs official with the u.s. state department that's. he said there's a very false narrative out there which i want to correct some people say the united states has sanctions against the country of zimbabwe we do not repeat do not have
8:32 pm
sanctions against the country of zimbabwe we have sanctions against certain individuals and certain corporations but not against the country of zimbabwe there is nothing to stop us businesses from investing in zimbabwe or. now to be precise the u.s. sanctions target $85.00 officials of the government officials who almost all mostly government officials that's right it also bans u.s. companies from dealing with $56.00 zimbabwean companies some banks and some off farms and then there's a ban on military exports to the country now the e.u. only has sanctions on former president robert mugabe and his wife grace correspondent spoke to people at the end to sanctions march and had. sanctions again tuesday by a great friend to do these because we no longer want teach here they must understand that zimbabwe suffering some chon it's a form of. that's what is is
8:33 pm
a part to take a flick on the zimbabwean i have to still feel for the cool sanctions if it does damage in zimbabwe today people of the zimbabwe companies who have them by. which if we are we are facing a. breach in america and its allies so we are seeing the enough is enough now not to wasn't took part in the government protests against sanctions some are of the view that the economic problems all home mate. joins me from harare he'll give us the opposition m.d.c. alliance if you welcome to africa doctors about what is your party's position on the sanctions are they stifling the economy. well no i think that it is but it clear to have risen bobbie and it is mismanagement it is the corruption it is also the irresponsibility of this regime
8:34 pm
on political. reforms that is this possible for the economy of the country faces look we have never and no business will invest in a country where people can be killed. for no particular reason and there is no justice for instituted a commission of inquiry which didn't turn out with things that implemented we have lost 20000000000 to corruption and the crisis ok talked about i want to put this quote see you have a u.s. official yes it is a chris coons and he says and i quote relieving sanctions would provide significant economic life for zimbabwe because it would encourage foreign direct investment i mean this is a u.s. senator said basically saying that the sanctions all very effective well look we know that. the government has been spending a lot of money nearly half
8:35 pm
a $1000000.00 that we don't have trying to get one of 2 u.s. politicians to make positive coalmines about this subject years affect that every zimbabwean and which is why they didn't turn up at the stadium today knows that is that the government is the one that's maintaining sanctions on the people of zimbabwe and has done so for nearly 40 years we know about these on a piece of government can unilaterally remove the sanctions imposed by any other country on the basis of simply implementing the forms that are required by the zimbabwean and not just by us or any other law any other comments i want to come in here because you made an end allegation against a government that some government officials have also made the allegations against your party saying that it is the opposition that is flowing to the waist and calling for more sanctions on zimbabwe what do you make of that nation is there truth to that. if this government believes the president as the leader of the opposition has the respect of the international
8:36 pm
community then it would be advised to resign and now the person who is able to come on the international respect and be in a relationship with other countries to run the country remember they stole this election last year through the process pretending that they could run the country while defending and they continuously say it is in fact the present time is all can run things who can and will be able to institute appropriate reforms fulfill for this country to move forward so i think that then they should just step aside the incapable doesn't every lead off a country does they do well with those does not that doesn't let me come in here because it's not only the government of zimbabwe calling for for the removal of the sanctions it's that it's that the regional body said that it's the african union are they missing the mock look or the doing that i don't see what they're doing that because this was supposed to be a subject day affection and all we saw is that the there was an election is how tough it going to be an election in tanzania and there was no action in zimbabwe
8:37 pm
itself so this is just a group of leaders as malema from south africa is this aid. guy did we can see that zimbabweans schon this much it is a lot of the day to day here in iraq so clearly these are some people who are you know lucian's about the reality of the top people even people understand situation the fact of the matter is that zanu p.f. has the sole responsibility and can unilaterally deal with any form of sanctions that you displaced on the people of zimbabwe then but today they have got to spend a lot of money and they've got nothing south africa has done nothing that stops and . you speak for the m.d.c. alliance thank you. now this is the mosquito that carries malaria threatening millions of people on the continent traditionally people living in high altitudes have been spared from the threat because africa's highlands are traditionally colder and so are mosquito free
8:38 pm
but now was creeping up mountains and finding new homes there thanks to the warming temperatures being ushered in by climate change. every 2 minutes a child dies of malaria worst affected countries in sub-saharan africa. it's this female mosquito that spreads the parasites causing malaria. thanks to the rollout of massive anti malaria campaigns many regions in africa have seen a sharp drop in malaria cases and deaths in the past 2 decades but progress is now stalling. worryingly malaria is on the rise especially in east africa partly responsible for this this climate change in the kilimanjaro region in east africa malaria used to be rare it's high altitude makes it too cold for mosquitoes now rising temperatures have opened the door to the spread of malaria in africa as
