Zimbabwe's Mnangagwa's first 100 days in office

Mandy Wiener speaks to political economist at Political Economy South Africa (Pesa) Siya Biniza, about Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa's first 100 days in office.

In November 2017, Mnangagwa took over from Robert Mugabe after a "coup" was initiated. Impeachment proceedings were halted in the parliament after the Speaker received a letter from Mugabe offering his resignation with immediate effect.

Biniza says Mnangagwa's first 100 days in office have received mixed reactions in terms of what he has been able to achieve thus far given what he has promised the people.

He is under a lot of pressure to deliver on this things particularly around investment and resuscitating the economy and setting up all the financial infrastructures that's been broken due to the economic slow down.

The other bigger pressure he faces is running a smooth election later this year.

He has been engaging with investors and going on roadshows letting them know that Zimbabwe is open for business - but given the infrastructure backlog in the country, there is still quite a lot that needs to be done to attract investors.
