There have been some tumultuous months in Zimbabwe. No one had foreseen that Mugabe would be forced out of power after 37 years, supported by the vast majority of the population. The upcoming election taking place on 30 July could decide the country's course for decades to come. What is the outcome of the elections? And what does this election mean for the future of Zimbabwe?

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? 

Our Zimbabwe experts discuss the recent elections and the road ahead for the country. Will also open for Q&A.
