Ambassador Mathema said the visit is meaningless for as long as the EU has not lifted the illegal sanctions it imposed on Zimbabwe.

The delegation, which is being led by the Head of the EU to Zimbabwe, Ambassador Aldo Dellarisha, is on a four-day visit to the Matabeleland region where they are meeting stakeholders from the economic, social and political sectors.

Ambassador Mathema said the EU should allow Zimbabweans to control their means of production.

The visit by the delegation comes at a time when the EU is set to review the illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.
