One year after Robert Mugabe: has Zimbabwe changed?

By John Cassim

On November 21st, 2018, exactly a year to the day has gone by since a coup led to the resignation of former leader Robert Mugabe, in Zimbabwe.

His resignation, this day last year....  was received with wild celebrations.... and many Zimbabweans entertained hopes, change was on its way.

A year later Zimbabweans feel cheated and nothing has changed and are debating if the country could be suffering as the coup was executed in November, a sacred month.
