Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. It is bordered by Botswana on the west, Zambia on the north, Mozambique on the east, and South Africa on the south. Zimbabwe was formerly known as Southern Rhodesia (1898), Rhodesia (1964), and Zimbabwe Rhodesia (1979).

On 18 April 1980, Britain formally granted independence to Zimbabwe at a ceremony in Harare, the country’s capital city. The country, which covers a land area of 386,850 square kilometres, has a population of 14.6 million people who are majorly Christians and related to the two major Bantu-speaking groups, the Shona and the Ndebele. Zimbabwe dollar (ZWL) is the official currency of the country. Although Zimbabwe has sixteen official languages, English is widely used in business and the usual language of instruction in school. The service is the main sector of the economy and contributes about 61.3% to the country’s GDP, while the agriculture sector accounts for approximately 66.19% of the total employment. The countries’ main Exports include gold, raw tobacco, ferroalloys, nickel ore, and diamonds.
