FROM THE ARCHIVES: Robert Mugabe and The Pillaging of Zimbabwe

Former Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe died last Friday. In this conversation from 2002, historian Martin Meredith told us how Mugabe destroyed the once-flourishing African state's wealth. From now until the Fall, to celebrate Worldview's 25th anniversary, we're bringing you stories like these from our deep archive.

Special thanks to the WBEZ Archives Team for cataloging 25 years of Worldview and making this segment possible.
