The US has added more Zimbabweans to its sanctions list.

Government sources say the Foreign Minister Sibusiso Moyo, was told two weeks ago that sanctions would be extended to more ministers at least until the general election.

The sanctions are believed to include new ministers who have joined Mr Mnangagwa's cabinet.

Reports say the US believes politicians deserve sanctions because it perceived President Emmerson Mnangagwa to have come to power in a military coup.

The US has not commented on the issue and its Treasury's sanctions page has not been updated since March 2017 - where is already lists Mr Mnangagwa as a sanctioned individual.
