Two African countries, Kenya and Zimbabwe have signed mutually beneficial bilateral agreements in relevant sectors to enhance good business and investment cooperation geared towards the development of both countries.

The agreement was signed on wednesday during an official visit by Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa to President Uhuru Kenyatta at the State House, located in Nairobi.

The Zimbabwean leader revealed that, “we affirmed the need for cooperation with bilateral commitment at global levels to deal with pandemics of this nature now and in the future. Both Zimbabwe and Kenya are committed to enhance cooperation towards mitigating the adverse effects of climate change and other environmental issues”.

His Kenyan counterpart also acknowledged the agreement whilst further calling on the west to lift long standing sanctions against the Zimbabwe. Kenyatta said he considers the sanctions “to be unfair.” He added that, “these hardships were artificially created and we continue to call on the international community to remove these illegal sanctions.”
