Mugabe's denial begs the question: Is there hope for Zim?

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe addresses a rally to mark the country's 37th independence anniversary in Harar

The world's most fragile state was Somalia followed by South Sudan (2nd) and the Central African Republic (third), based on 12 social, economic and political indicators.

The recently turned 93 leader, whose government is accused of decimating Zimbabwe's economy and causing untold suffering to ordinary masses, told the World Economic Forum in SA that the country is not a fragile State.

But this report, which saw Ghana's name vanish from the top 10 does not remain a bother to the Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe. Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa.

Ironically, his admission that Zimbabwe has resources in abundance fits into the "resource curse" description which says that countries with an abundance of natural resources tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than those with fewer natural resources.

Asked by Anton du Plessis from the Institute for Security Studies if he thought Zimbabwe was in the category of fragile States, Mugabe sagged in his chair and slowly retorted: "That isn't true". We get discriminated [against] at the jobs we do because we don't belong here. "It is important that we have elections that are free and fair - that reflect the will of the people".
