There is a growing awareness that the political and economic crisis that is threatening the very survival of the nation is a result of gross mis-governance and grand corruption by the ZANU (PF) government. Zimbabwe is presently steeped in a multi-dimensional crisis as the country experiences the worst forms of crony corruption and is governed by a regime which can only be accurately described as a Kleptocracy.
