Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe says his country is not a fragile state.
Zimbabwe is struggling with a debt crisis, a fall in foreign exchange inflows and acute shortages of cash.
However, Mugabe has told a panel on fragile countries at the World Economic Forum on Africa that Zimbabwe’s economy is on the mend.
The nonagenarian leader insisted that despite years of a collapsed economy, the country is highly successful.
Citing the state’s 90% literacy rate, he went on: “Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa after South Africa.”
