The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield played a clip of an earlier interview by Stephen Grootes of Dr Pedzisai Ruhanya, Director of the Zimbabwe Democracy Institute.

Ruhanya painted a picture of the atmosphere in Harare.

Whitfield also interviewed Ray Ndlovu (a correspondent for the Mail & Guardian in Zimbabwe since 2009) and businessman Trevor Ncube.

Trevor Ncube
