Emmerson Mnangagwa

Emmerson Mnangagwa is the current president of Zimbabwe. After occupying many governmental positions and being one of the closest allies of Robert Mugabe, he took over power in a coup in 2017.
Mnangagwa is accused of shielding gold and diamond smugglers operating in Zimbabwe, directing government officials to facilitate the sale of these precious resources in illicit markets, and accepting bribes for his services. [1]
The sanctioning of the president 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]
