Bankrolling Mugabe

Channel 4


Go to About Section

Aidan Hartley travels undercover in Zimbabwe to investigate how Robert Mugabe and his Zanu-PF party manage to cling on to power.

He and cameraman Mike Mawhinney encounter intimidation and violence at first hand as they investigate international businesses opposition politicians allege are bankrolling and profiting from Mugabe's rule.

Hartley shows how Mugabe has maintained his grip on the army, police and the central bank, enabling him to get away with corruption on a vast scale.
