As I am a political buff, the upcoming elections in Zimbabwe which are due to be held in August have garnered my attention. Robert Mugabe the ex-president still holds a very influential position in the ZANU-PF party which he had founded. The best part he had a;ready announced that he would run for presidential post in 2018 even though he would have been 94 but due to the impeachment proceedings against him, he stepped down and named Emmerson as his successor. The current opinion polls still hold that ZANU-PF would win and even though Mugabe might be one of the most corrupt heads of a government he is still the most popular leader. On a personal note I believe there needs to be a 180 degree shift in governance however the introduction of US dollar as the currency has surely supported the economy.
Here is the silver lining, its not he families but close aides working here. Emmerson is a close ally of Mugabe so when he stepped down he named Emmerson as his successor. However people believe that Mugabe will be the ultimate authority even though Emmerson might be the President.
