·  The EU said they will start sending aid directly to Zimbabwe from 2014, a move that is set to improve prosper ­ity to the Zimbabwean people currently under a transitional government.

·  The Coalition calls upon the Inclusive Government to prioritize the process of removing the sanctions placed on the people of Zimbabwe through draconian laws, selective application of the law, political violence and intimida ­tion and the fettering of free expression, speech and political activity.
