Mugabe inauguration: time to lift Zimbabwe sanctions?

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 22 August 2013

There are growing calls for the west to lift sanctions on Zimbabwe as Robert Mugabe is sworn in as the country's president for a seventh time. We speak to a Zimbabwe businessman and a journalist, both of whom have been imprisoned by the Mugabe regime at different points over the last thirty years. Dominic Laurie continues his tour of Europe - today he's in Cyprus, almost six months on from its bank bailout, and he's been speaking to Harris Georgiades, the country's new finance minister. We speak to our chief business correspondent, Linda Yueh, about another bad week for emerging markets, particularly India. And while the Indian economy struggles, what's worrying the attention of ordinary people is the price of onions. We have a special report from Mumbai.
