All the news from Zimbabwe is bleak

With talks deadlocked or collapsed there seems little hope. And South Africa seems to be cracking down on Zimbabwean asylum seekers.

Poverty has spread across much of the country. Half the country needs food aid. Hospitals are closing and treatment depends of cash up front. The elderly suffer, there is not enough food in rural areas, you can go to prison to die. Life expectancy is 44 for men and 43 for women. Clean water can be hard to come by. It's little better in the cities.

This two-year-old from Tsholotsho has kwashiorkor which had not been seen for decades in Zimbabwe.

And why? So one group can keep power and the rest can go hang.
