Abstract:     
This paper analyzes how the values premised in Zimbabwe’s colonial history and liberation struggle, ideological differences and partocracy have influenced the perspectives of the Zimbabwe and the Western governments respectively in understanding the causes that led to the imposition of sanctions on Zimbabwe. Furthermore, this article explores the nature of Zimbabwe sanctions by making a comparative analysis of the perceptions of both the sanctioners and the sanctionees. Fundamental to this analysis is the diversity in jargon used in addressing the nature of sanctions. This paper concludes by proffering recommendations on how the parties involved can resolve this “war on lingo” to resolve Zimbabwe’s catastrophe.
