Zimbabwe on brink of economic collapse


Faced with its worst economic crisis in a decade and an unemployment rate of 90%, Zimbabwe is fast becoming a nation of street vendors.

They come out after dark all over Zimbabwe, when the local police have gone home for the evening, because selling things on the street is the only way to make a living.

Everyone is open about the contraband on sale. If you really want sugar in your coffee then you have to buy it here because you will no longer find sugar on the shelves of the local supermarket.

However, the shortages have become so acute that even the street-sellers have run out of things like bread and fuel.

As the business of the nation retreats to the shadows, Zimbabwe’s new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa is charged with preventing the economy’s collapse.
