EU imposes sanctions on Zimbabwe

Gideon Gono, the governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe is barred from the European Union (EU).

European Union (EU) foreign ministers on Tuesday voted to deny entry and freeze assets held by Gono and 34 other Zimbabwean officials as a result of the "violence organised and committed by the Zimbabwean authorities during the presidential election campaign in 2008."

The EU said that the violence had "turned the election into a denial of democracy".

The sanctions will also apply to Munyaradzi Kereke
