The relatively peaceful election campaign in Zimbabwe has given people hope of change. However, the country is in desperate need of capital, as the infrastructure is in shatters and the government debts are massive. The two parties fighting for power is Zanu-PF, the ruling party, and the opposition party Movement for Democratic Change. Did the opposition have a fair chance?
