China's Zimbabwe Risk

The Diplomat published on 7 December 2016 a commentary titled "China's Zimbabwe Risk" by Wang Xinsong, associate professor at Beijing Normal University.

The author lays out the tricky situation facing China and its close relationship with the aging Robert Mugabe. He concludes the worst scenario for China is a rudderless Zimbabwe, with neither of the ZANU-PF factions winning in a post-Mugabe government, a destructive but weak opposition party force, uncontrollable social turmoil, and the military stepping into politics.
