7:17 pm
this isn't the making of a horror movie cockroaches destined for the dinner plate and the use in medicines. i've been visible in let's do business zimbabwe is celebrating independence day but no one celebrating the economy thirty nine years of independence from colonial rule and public anger is only growing over president damaged the man of god was failure to revive the economy for a long ruled left in ruins and the situation is still a catastrophe ninety percent unemployment and perennial food shortages following the seizure of land from white commercial farmers two decades ago zimbabwe was still able to achieve economic growth of close to three and a half percent last year but the outlook for this year is very different the international monetary fund for costs minus five point two percent is a lack of funds for investments how the anyone is prepared to lend to zimbabwe
7:18 pm
rapid inflation would eat that away anyway just a year ago inflation was in check but it's shot up to almost fifty seven percent and the situation is getting worse by the day the un reckons if a five million people are in danger of starvation well zimbabwe is trying to get back its white farmers many of whom moved abroad long ago some are now suing south africa for helping the gobby to suppress their case for compensation let's talk about that and the economy with privilege here e who's in the capital harare for us first of all zimbabwe's already offered white farmers some money for the investments they made on their seized properties but they want compensation for their land what's what's the chances what are the chances of them getting that from south africa.
7:19 pm
their case that the putting in the south african courts it is difficult for them it's an up task because you look at south africa itself right now it is going through the same process that zimbabwe went through to wanting to expropriate land without compensation so you find that yes they may approach this african courts but . for them to get a favorable judgment it is difficult to see that and the other issues that are going to south africa yes it happened so that figure by then it supported the dissolution of the south africa the southern african tribunals court which had i why did the white farmers. be tricia and you know for them to get compensation but then. how that judgment then would be implemented for them to get compensation for their land and even the improvement that they've done on the land
7:20 pm
in zimbabwe it is quite in. africa one may see how it is the how is it going to or not that and even pay for land which is not diction privilege tell me more about the economy first of all inflation how did it get so high. the inflation in zimbabwe. if you look back it's these are historical issues dating back from the time when former president robert mugabe was to be in power economy has been in ruins and now coming to. what they're now calling the second republic you may recall that earlier this year there was a sharp increase in fuel and that has caused a lot of increases in prices and even in inflation yes
7:21 pm
inflation is course by an increase in money supply but. if you want to look at it it is because there are shortages that have been created by the sharp increase or fuel and this is had in effect across their war economy because businesses are now increasing prices especially if you look at this week people are crying foul because prices of commodities sharply. and the explanation is difficult to get even from economist and even government to say how is the justification of that the sharp increase in duties even the president today when he was addressing the. gathering for the celebrations for independence the thirty ninth the celebration in the celebrations he mentioned that you know and they don't want to go the route of going to price controls they want market forces to
