Zimbabwe Now Worse Off Than Under Mugabe – NewsDay Columnist

A NewsDay columnist opines that Zimbabwe is now worse off in every way than it was under former President Robert Mugabe.

President Mugabe was overthrown in a military coup in November 2017 with huge crowds in Harare celebrating the nonagenarian’s fall. He was replaced by his deputy, President Mnangagwa whom he had sacked.

While the generality of citizens believed that Mugabe’s demise will usher the country to paradise, the opposite is what happened. Wrote the columnist:

… nothing confirms the worst of the current period as opposed to the previous than the incessant economic woes besetting Zimbabwe.

Zimbabweans, economically, are wallowing in an orgy of self-pity as they look back to the Mugabe era. Bad, the situation was, but today it has become worse.

The human rights abuses that saw several western nations impose sanctions on Zimbabwe remain intact.

… A mere glance at the quality of life of Zimbabweans today pathetically confirms the gory truth of our unenviable situation… At least under Mugabe, no electrical power cuts were experienced.

Zimbabwe has virtually little to no households that still enjoy running water in their homes.

… Zimbabwe has become a haven for weekly fuel price increases. The banning of the use of multiple currencies has further thrown people into the deep end.

  1. It is very unfortunate that people were that naive to think that the same system but led by a different person with the same system DNA would bring change.

    1. I predicted this when mgabe was “overthrown”. They were just blinding Zimbabweans to the truth. That coup was just a big con, and zimbabeans believed that they were arriving at the promised land. In truth mgabe has enough loot and had given gwagwa the country to also continue looting in the name of a coup! The only way zim will recover is to uproot the whole ZANU gang and have young, dedicated leaders without links to the old order!
