Is Zimbabwe Ready to Abolish the Death Penalty?

Former president Robert Mugabe, around the time of his fall from grace, had plans to resume executions. Advertisements were placed to recruit a hangman - a position that had been vacant since 2005. His successor President Emmerson Mnangagwa, on the other hand, has been vocal in his opposition to the death penalty. Significantly, he himself had faced the prospect of being hanged in the colonial era.
