Formerly one of southern Africa’s most efficient and appealing countries, Zimbabwe has been coming apart at the seams in recent years. It is in the throes of political and economic crises, and ill-conceived policies have decimated food production to the point that half the country is short of food and may face famine this year. If so, massive migration to urban or border areas could occur, and unrest would be likely. Nationwide fuel shortages have disrupted transportation, and crime has increased with the imploding economy.
