With widespread misuse of state resources during the 37 years of President Robert Mugabe's rule, Zimbabwe has been brought to its knees. A look at daily life in the capital Harare.
Chaotic land reforms, drought and lack of financing have made it difficult for Zimbabwe's small-holder farmers to get ahead. Increased focus on funding irrigation schemes is hoping to change that.
Grappling with a severe economic crisis, Zimbabwe was hoping for increased cooperation with Germany and other western nations. Robert Mugabe was ousted a year ago. But money is not going to flow any time soon.
The capital Harare has been inundated by the outbreak, with more than 3,000 cases reported. NGOs have accused the government of spending state cash on luxury items instead of providing basic healthcare.
Opposition supporters stand accused of "committing public violence" in the wake of contested elections claimed by incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa. His main rival says he will challenge the results in court.
