WATCH | Zimbabwe faces food crisis, 60% of population staring down starvation, says UN

Prolonged droughts, a battered economy and Covid-19 have seen rising rates of hunger in Zimbabwe.

The United Nations estimates as many as eight million Zimbabweans will not have enough food by December - roughly 60% of the population.

Malnutrition has been seen to be escalating in the country, with those struggling with chronic illnesses also unable to get enough food.
