Zimbabwean diaspora to pay for new railway

The diaspora are funding an upgrade to the ageing railway

Zimbabwe is set to revive its railway network using funds raised from Zimbabweans living abroad.

Today President Emmerson Mnangangwa commissioned the first phase of the $400m (£286m) project.

Most international investors have been too afraid to invest in huge infrastructural projects citing political risk.

So the government is turning to some of the millions of Zimbabweans who fled the country during the economic meltdown.

Reports say the group is made up of more than a 1,000 Zimbabweans, most of whom are based in South Africa.
