Economy remains a top concern ahead of Zimbabwe election

Zimbabweans will head to the polls on Wednesday to vote. The election is taking place as the country’s economy is still struggling against headwinds, including a notoriously unstable currency that has dropped more than 50% against the dollar in the past month. While there are 11 candidates standing for president, the chief opposition to the ZANU-PF is Nelson Chamisa of the Citizens Coalition for Change.
