The Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front says sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe more than a decade ago have cost the country some US42 billion over the past 12 years, according to media reports today. Quoting the party’s manifesto the reports said Zimbabwe lost US$36 million a year in donor support and $79 million a year in loans from the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the African Development Bank. Negative publicity scared away potential creditors and reduced commercial loans by US$431 million a year.
