Millions of Zimbabweans are already facing food insecurity, primarily due to drought, mismanagement of resources by government, and Covid-19 hasn't made it any better. Critics say President Emmerson Mnangagwa has failed to keep promises he made in 2018's election campaign to revive the economy by pushing through reforms, attracting foreign investment and rebuilding collapsing infrastructure.
