    Zimbabwe minister of foreign affairs and international trade SB Moyo has released a statement condemning recent behavior from US Ambassador Brian Nichols. The statement calls out the unfavorable remarks made by Ambassador Nichols on the Zimbabwe Anti Sanctions march held on 25 October 2019. The ambassador appeared in an interview claiming that sanctions had not negatively affected Zimbabwe’s economy. Using the US Embassy twitter account, he continued to express his dismay on the level of corruption which according to him has deterred foreign investment. The Zimbabwean government was however not pleased by his conduct as he was expected to have a neutral role towards the country’s politics. The statement released by Minister Moyo states that the sole purpose of an ambassador should be to protect the interests of the sending country while promoting dialogue between sending and receiving country. However, the ambassador may not meddle in the internal affairs of the receiving country or assume a political role. Zimbabwe has thus threatened to cut ties with the US embassy if more meddling continues.
