All Eyes On Zimbabwe Ahead of Crucial Polls

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been cautiously welcomed with the hope that he will place Zimbabwe on a more democratic trajectory. He has spoken of a new democracy unfolding - promising to take radical steps to rebuild the Zimbabwe. Foreign observers say Zimbabweans are freer now than they have ever been in the last 38 years. The opposition MDC Alliance agrees Mnangagwa has moved Zimbabwe inches forward, but are suspicious where is it headed.
