Zimbabwe survived a year of conflict and financial crises that had the country shaking.

Sadly, the ousting of Robert Mugabe did not result in a u-turn for the country, as many said that was just wishful thinking anyway.

Currently, the country suffers from a shortage of bread and fuel. According to a report by eNCA, there's no hope that things will look up very soon.

Sadly, it was not a good Christmas for most Zimbabweans this year.

Even those who travelled for Christmas had to brave mile-long queues for fuel. Briefly.co.za gathered that this Christmas was reportedly the worst one Zimbabwe had in many years.

Furthermore, doctors decided to strike, leaving Zimbabweans without important healthcare on Christmas.

Zimbabwe's government suspended 550 striking doctors, while those who remained at work withdrew their services.
