CGD’s Todd Moss, along with Dewa Mahvinga from Human Rights Watch and Mark Schneider from International Crisis Group are testifying, as are Acting Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Yamamoto and Assistant Administrator for Africa of USAID Earl Gast on the government panel.
I’ll be listening for Todd’s assessment of current US government policy, as well as how the United States should be preparing for a transition from 89-year old Mugabe’s 33-year reign. More sanctions? Less sanctions? Lift sanctions? Is there a useful role for the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to play? Does the election mean anything? There are no longer trillion dollar bills in circulation but is Zimbabwe’s economy really on the road to recovery (and what happened to all that diamond revenue)?
