In support of the Short-Term Economic Recovery Programme (STERP) of the Zimbabwe Inclusive Government, the South African Government extended R300 million as a budget support grant, which does not have to be repaid. The grant was managed and governed by a Memorandum of Understanding signed in May 2009 by the Finance Ministers of the two countries.
