dc.description.abstract This honors thesis exposes human rights violations and economic mismanagement within Zimbabwe. The country itself has been shown to have enormous potential for growth, if only it was managed correctly. Its president, Robert Mugabe, has taken a country that was once known as "the breadbasket of Africa," and turned it into a country of famine, disease, and violence. The native majority, tired of Western oppression, has gained the political support to take Western-owned farms by force, and has done so. Mugabe still takes the best land for himself and his friends, keeps foreign aid from the people who oppose him, and withholds medicine that could be used to keep babies from being infected with AIDS. Tribal politics plays a large role in these policies as does the corruption only power without accountability can bring. This essay explores Zimbabwe's history, the failure of Robert Mugabe's leadership, and what must be done to ensure a hopeful future for the people of Zimbabwe. en_US
