The White House announced Wednesday that Bush had signed an executive order Tuesday blocking all property and financial holdings in the United States owned by 128 people and 33 farms and businesses in Zimbabwe. It also bars U.S. citizens from having financial dealings with them.

Designed to encourage Mugabe to restore democracy to Zimbabwe, President Bush shows with more tough action that he is a friend of Africa. Dana Perino, White House spokeman said “This action is not aimed at the people of Zimbabwe, but rather at those most responsible for their plight.”
