Mnangagwa Has Squandered His Goodwill, But is It Too Late?

Two years after winning Zimbabwe's disputed 2018 election, President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government has performed dismally towards implementing political and economic reforms perceived as key to ending the country's multifaceted crisis. In November 2017, Mnangagwa stormed to power through a military intervention that toppled the late former president Robert Mugabe, garnering international goodwill and overwhelming support at home after decades of misrule by his predecessor.
