Mugabe death one year on: Is Zimbabwe better or worse?
A democratic state remains a distant dream in Zimbabwe a year after the death of Robert Mugabe who ruled the country for 37 years before being toppled by a military coup in November 2017.
No major celebrations are planned for the anniversary of Mugabe’s death.
The ruling party Zanu PF which he helped found had not released any official statement by midday on the day of his anniversary.
A section of Zimbabweans profess no great nostalgia for the Mugabe days in a country which has been sliding from crisis to crisis.
Others, though believe they are worse off now than they were under Mugabe despite that he created an authoritarian regime.
