Zimbabwe’s economy has suffered from years of decay and international isolation. Young people are among the worst affected. They are hoping for a brighter future following the swearing in of a new government. DW spoke to some of them in Harare.
Zimbabwe’s economy is in dire straits. President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promised to stabilize the economy 'soon' but not everyone is optimistic.
Emmerson Mnangagwa has taken the oath of office following an election victory that was disputed by the main opposition. He has held the post since November following the resignation of longtime leader Robert Mugabe.
Zimbabwe's electoral commission has declared Emmerson Mnangagwa president with 50.8 percent of the vote. Calling the results "fake," opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa has vowed to launch a legal challenge.
Whoever is awarded the mandate to govern Zimbabwe by the court hearing the opposition's legal challenge to the ruling party's election victory faces the daunting task of turning a crippled economy around.
