If USA sanctions South Africa, we will become Zimbabwe

Last week, South African officials allowed a cargo plane that was targeted by U.S. sanctions for supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to land at an air force base near the capital, Pretoria, last week. The move could further increase tensions with the U.S. The South African Rand need to be protected by all means. If the Rand falls, it cannot be picked up. This looming tension between ANC and USA may lead to policies that affect the Rand. 



If Russia sanctions South Africa, most of us wouldn’t know or even care. If USA sanctions South Africa, we become Zimbabwe. Yoy can “Stand with Russia” all you want, but this is the reality.

Because of sanctions that were imposed on Zimbabwe for the violation of the white Zimbabweans, Zimbabwe experienced a period of hyperinflation spanning a few decades that culminated in 2008 with the introduction of the 100,000,000,000,000 banknote. If sanctions are imposed, the Rand might suffer.
