Zimbabwe's Christian youth

A Christian youth movement in Zimbabwe said the country’s coalition government fails to deal with hunger and human rights violations, calling it a “sad reality.”

The Students Christian Movement of Zimbabwe said in a June 17 report that most workers earn 1 to 3.5 percent of the cost of basic needs.

Surely the coalition government is elitist in nature. It is benefiting the rich and politically powerful. The economy has been dolarised, if not the US$, then one should have the SouthAfrican rand or the Botswana pula. People are stuch with huge amounts of the defucnt Zim$. Where do the unemployed get the forex? It is now survival of the elite. Civil servants are being paid at most US$170 a month which is nothing compared to the cost of living. This coalition thing is like two bulls in the same kraal, it is not work at the expected rate which should correspond with the level of destruction in the country. Grace and peace.
