Like millions of Zimbabweans, I was disappointed by the election results – but there is still hope

The fact of the matter is that we now have another five years of Zanu-PF – the party that has overseen the decay of a once proud and prosperous nation. This is the party that has been synonymous with rigging elections in the past, with violence, corruption and human rights abuses on a large scale. Its upper echelons – the chefs (as they are called in local parlance) – are wealthy beyond measure, while most Zimbabweans are jobless.
