First broadcast August 2007

For the past seven years, Zimbabweans have been struggling to cope with an ever-deepening political and economic crisis.

How did it become so bad, and what's the solution?

In the second of two programmes, Paul Bakibinga considers what Zimbabweans might do to recover a more stable footing.

Zimbabwe Out of Control - Part Two

Zimbabwe has the world's highest inflation rate. It also has one of the world's lowest levels of life expectancy.

But is it hopeless? How can Zimbabwe get back to being the prosperous 'bread basket' it once was?

Before Paul Bakibinga can consider the way forward, he must approach the subject of 'the elephant in the room' - namely Robert Mugabe.
