Zimbabwe has technology just like most other countries. However, due to the decline of the country under the reign of Robert Mugabe, technology has become less accesible.
Poverty. Land is quite good in Zimbabwe and there are a lot of farms. These had been given to people who were not able to run them so well. As a result food production dropped…, which has led to poverty and hunger. Massive inflation has led to high prices, making it more difficult for people to buy food. Robert Mugabe has run the country since independence in 1980 and during that time has become increasingly dictatorial in his style. There has been a lot of violence and civil unrest in the country.
Zimbabwe has many problems: the Blood diamond trade, lack of accessto education, AIDs, and Robert Mugabe who will not step down aspresident.

Access to Resources in Zimbabwe is purely based on money, lots of it and usually in foreign currency (ZAR,USD or GBP). The Zimbabwean Dollar is now worthless and most shops, h…ospitals and businesses do not accept it as means of payment. So you have to either earn foreign currency or swap your Zimbabwan Dollars at some ridiculous rate for foreign currency on the black (or parallel) market. You can then use your foreign currency to buy food, fuel, medicines or anything else you need. There was a News clip this morning where starving people were scratching through a rubbish dump for food and eating directly from it. They scratched through and moved aside a ZW$10,000,000 note as it is worthless.. So you can see that the ordinary Zimabwean who works for a company agrees to work, for example, for ZW$100,000,000 for the month. By the time the end of the month comes, that is now worth zero with the inflation rate in the hundreds of millions. Prices are doubling every day at least. In most cases, it costs more to get to work than you will earn in wages. So come the end of the month, this worker now queues for the whole day to withdraw his money and his ZW$100,000,000 may only buy him a loaf of bread which he can't find anyway and will probably have to find foreign currency to buy it anyway.
