hello i'm christine wonderwall come to africa it's good to have you along thousands of people marched across the 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 it's both the e.u. and the u.s. say the sanctions they've imposed on zimbabwe do 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 maggie and 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
3:18 am
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 u.s. businesses from investing in zimbabwe or. now to be precise the u.s. sanctions target $85.00 officials of the government officials who almost. government officials that's right it also bans u.s. companies from dealing with $56.00 zimbabwean companies some banks and some 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 our correspondent spoke to people at the end to sanctions march in the. west saying sanctions again tuesday by a great friend to do these because we no longer want teach here they must understand that zimbabwe suffered some chon it's a form of. that's what is is
3:19 am
a part to take a freak on zimbabwe or you have to stand for the cool sanctions if cause does damage in zimbabwe to the people of the it's a bad way to come by news of the bible. which if we are used we are facing a. breach in america in our eyes so we are seeing the enough is enough now not always involve ians took part in the government protests against sanctions some are of the view that the economic problems all mate. that joins me from harare he'll give us the opposition m.d.c. alliances you're welcome to africa doctors about the 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
3:20 am
on political. reforms that is this possible for the economy of the country faces look we have never had and no business will invest in a country where people can be killed no notice and for no particular reason and there is no justice for instituted a commission of inquiry which didn't turn up 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 who has seen as 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 basically saying that the sanctions are all very effective well look we know about the government has been spending a lot of money nearly half a $1000000.00 up we don't have trying to get one of 2 u.s.
3:21 am
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 that these are the be of government can unilaterally remove the sanctions imposed by any other country on the basis of simply implementing the forms that are required by design bob and not just by us or any other law any other comments about that at one of coming up 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 going to the waste and calling for more sanctions on zimbabwe what do you make of that and at the station is there truth to that if. if this government believes the president as the leader of the opposition has the respect of the international
3:22 am
community then it would be advised to resign and allow the person who is able to come on 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 be able to institute appropriate reforms fulfill for this country to move forward so i think that then they should just decide that i'm capable that's what every lead off a country does they do well with those those dutch 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 the regional body said that it's the african union are they missing the mock. the they are doing that i don't see what they are doing that because these are supposed to be a subject day affection and all we saw is that the there was an election in south africa on election in zambia an election in tanzania and there was no action in
3:23 am
zimbabwe itself so this is just a group of leaders as malema from south africa as a sayed. guided we can see the resemblance schon this much it is a lot of the day today here in iraq so clearly these are some people who are you know about the reality of the top people even people understand situation the fact of the matter is that is on the p.f. as the sole responsibility and can you not only deal with any form of sanctions that you displaced on the people of zimbabwe then but today they have. spent a lot of money and have got nothing south africa has done nothing that stops and when it was he speaks 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
3:24 am
but now mosquitoes are creeping up mountains and finding new homes there thanks to the warming temperatures be shipped in by climate change. every 2 minutes a child dies of malaria and 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 is 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 and africa's
3:25 am
highlands. peter carey malaria paul becoming president and some of the places where they were in place in. the cold the coldest points of become less cold in these high altitude areas but obviously that's a very worrying development climate change is also triggering bigger and more frequent storms like cycle and that hit mozambique and parts of zimbabwe earlier this year mosquitoes thrive in the sheer masses of standing water left behind hopes are high for a malaria vaccination currently piloting in kenya ghana and malawi but of african countries want to win the fight against malaria they need to take steps to deal with these fresh challenges. from coffee beans to oxford brewing coffee from beings as nothing special but them into an entry in the guineas book of records certainly
