Auxillia Mnangagwa

The First Lady of Zimbabwe, Auxillia Mnangagwa, is accused of complicity in corruption regarding the vast schemes allegedly orchestrated by the political elite of the country around diamond and gold smuggling. [1]
The sanctioning of the president and the First Lady under the Magnitsky regime comes after the United States abolished the sanctions regime specifically designed for Zimbabwe, which it had introduced in 2003. An Al Jazeera investigation in 2023 uncovered that Zimbabwe’s government was using smuggling gangs to sell gold worth hundreds of millions of dollars, helping to mitigate the impact of sanctions. Gold is the country‚Äôs largest export. [2]
