A year after the exit of former President Mugabe, hopes for a new Zimbabwe is still low with fears of economic collapse and deepening divisions.
Reports say, this feeling gives credence to calls on government to act much faster on its promises.
A year since a trio of army generals held former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe under house arrest as part of a 10-day military operation that enabled his protege, Emmerson Mnangagwa, to take power, there are mixed feelings as to how different the proclaimed “new dispensation” is from Mugabe’s autocracy.
In an unprecedented show of support for the de facto coup, on November 18, 2017, hundreds of thousands of Zimbabweans marched the streets, demanding the veteran ruler step down.
Days later, just moments after a parliamentary impeachment hearing began, the then 93-year-old resigned after nearly four decades in power.
But a year since President Mnangagwa’s inception, the hope some citizens had in the liberation fighter nicknamed “the Crocodile” now seems jaded.
