Is Zimbabwe Finance Minister Ncube's Mission Impossible?

Newly- appointed Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube faces the unenviable task of navigating Zimbabwe's stuttering economy through serious challenges and will need to make tough decisions. The urgency of addressing these challenges is evidenced by the meeting, which Ncube had with 50 business leaders at a Harare hotel, two days after his swearing-in as the new Treasury boss, to discuss challenges faced by business - but will he receive the necessary political support from Mnangagwa and the ruling party or he will find the going tough.
