Robert Mugabe’s Re-election And The Zimbabwean Economy

As the dust settles following Zimbabwe’s controversial election, we discuss the impact that Robert Mugabe’s re-election will have on the country’s fragile economy.

Joining the podcast this week from Harare is Matthew Searle, a senior analyst with Business Monitor’s Sub-Saharan Africa research team.
