There is no doubt that the events of the last 48 hours in Zimbabwe mark the beginning of the end of Robert Mugabe’s reign. The dictator’s 37-year-rule was distinguished by untold suffering, high inflation, shortages of water, electricity and money. Millions of Zimbabweans left the country in search of better opportunities. The majority of those who remained were left to live in poverty and illness.
"For Zimbabwe, a Coup Isn’t the Answer" is from the November 16, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Glen Mpani and narrated by Kristi Burns.
