The president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, has taken his power to a new and fatal direction. Mugabe took power in 1980 and over the years has become increasingly violent. Activists are being beaten and tortured. Millions of Zimbabweans are dependent on food aid programs. Lack of fertilizer is predicted to worsen the food shortages this year. 80% of the citizens are unemployed. 20% are infected with AIDS and the new infection rate is the highest in Africa. Tens of thousands are reported to have been forcefully evicted from their homes which are then burned. This is called Operation Murambatsvina
