Crisis drives the S.Africa to Zimbabwe cargo shuttle

Zimbabweans transporting goods from South Africa, commonly referred to as “Malayitsha”, are seeing their businesses boom as a result of the price hikes on food and fuel in Zimbabwe.

We Were Inside Zimbabwe After The Government Cracked Down On Protestors (HBO)

Things were supposed to be different in Zimbabwe after its former strongman ruler, Robert Mugabe, was deposed in a bloodless coup in 2017.

But once again, people in the southern African country are living in fear after enduring the worst state violence in over a decade, which left at least 12 people dead, hundreds more injured and over 1,000 detained.

For many, hope of a bright future has already been shattered.

Signs of disappointment in the state could be seen in December, when small scale demonstrations over stagnant wages began. The protests were a reaction to crippling inflation rates, which had reached a 10-year high, and the toll it was taking on everyday Zimbabweans.

But it was President Emmerson Mnungagwa’s decision to raise the price of fuel by 150 percent, that brought thousands onto the streets.

Overnight, Zimbabwe became one of the most expensive places in the world to buy fuel, and the people were letting the government know how they felt about it — some set fire to tires in the road and others were caught looting.

The state responded with brutal force. The government shutdown the internet, and deployed soldiers and youth militia from the ruling party, Zanu-PF, who went town to town, street to street, door to door, beating men, women and children.

Victims relive Zimbabwe massacres that taint new leader

More than three decades after Zimbabwe’s Gukurahundi massacre, its ghosts are coming back to haunt newly-appointed Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The word “Gukurahundi” loosely translates to “the early rain which washes away the chaff”. As the minister of state security in the early 80’s under Robert Mugabe he is described by historians as one of the architects of the killings that claimed the lives of about 20,000 Zimbabweans.
