Emmerson Mnangagwa: Zimbabwe’s Political Landscape and the Challenges Ahead

Emmerson Mnangagwa, also known as “the crocodile,” took power in Zimbabwe after the military takeover that led to the resignation of longtime ruler Robert Mugabe. Mnangagwa promised a new start for the country, but as he seeks re-election, Zimbabweans are still grappling with high inflation, poverty, and a climate of fear. While his supporters point to a mining boom and foreign investments during his time in office, critics argue that most changes introduced by Mnangagwa have not benefitted the ordinary Zimbabwean.
