Zimbabwe’s Mnangagwa faces political, social and economic crises
Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has a daunting task ahead. He has indicated he wants to engage with the West, encourage investment and open up the country’s politics. But elements inside his own party are holding him back. The military wing of the ZANU-PF, led by Vice President Constantin Chiwenga, seems intent on continuing repression and backward economic policies. Until President Mnangagwa gains control of his party, he will be unable to implement any real reforms.
