AGS Professor Douglas Yates on France 24The much anticipated elections, the first since Mugabe was ousted in November 2017, saw a face-off between Mugabe’s former chief of security and acting interim president Emerson Mnangagwa, who had staged the November coup, and his main opponant Nelson Chamisa, who had inherited the leadership of the opposition MDC after the death of long-time regime opponent Mirgan Tsvangirai. The MDC had been a party unified ideologically by its opposition to 37-year dictator Mugabe, and politically by its support for the charismatic leader Tsvangirai.

Professor Yates explained that the disappearance of both men from the equation left the opposition MDC splintered, a weakness of which the ruling ZANU took advantage to win both the presidential and legislative elections.
On August 15-16, Prof. Yates will be travelling to Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, for a panel on economic history at the annual conference of Africa Covening.

If you take advantage of AGS, you can go very far. I am very happy with my decision to go to AGS and soak up Paris as much as two years will allow.
