Zimbabwe, is a landlocked country located in the southern part of the continent of Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo  rivers. It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana  to the southwest, Zambia to the northwest and Mozambique  to the east. Zimbabwe has three official languages: English, Shona (a Bantu language), and Ndebele (also a Bantu language).

Zimbabwe began as a part of the British crown colony of Rhodesia. President Robert Mugabe is the head of State and Commander in Chief of the armed forces. Morgan Tsvangirai is the Prime Minister. Mugabe has been in power since the country's long war for independence. Although initially during the 1980s his administration was credited with improving the standard of living and the economy, his rule has been characterized by gross economic mismanagement, hyperinflation, and widespread reports of human rights abuses. The collapse of the nation's economy and widespread poverty and unemployment has increased support for Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara and his opposition party, Movement for Democratic Change, which in late 2008 agreed to share power with Mugabe.
