President Emmerson Mnangagwa this week completed 50 days in office, but in that short stint, the negatives have so far outweighed the positives amid indications he faces a herculean task in his bid to revive the comatose economy.

Mnangagwa, who won the July 30 election by a wafer-thin 50,6%, was inaugurated on August 26 after a Constitutional Court challenge by his main rival Nelson Chamisa seeking to nullify the results was dismissed.

Mnangagwa has pledged to revive the shaky economy, re-engage the international community and bring Zimbabwe out of international isolation, as part of a new dispensation which has promised to respect constitutionalism, human rights and open the country for business.
