Zimbabwe: earliest harvest April 2010, slowly starving, 80% of children not in school

LA Times: Jimmy Carter says Zimbabwe crisis is 'much worse' than imagined. Excerpts:

...dismay that Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and his government refused to acknowledge the problem even existed.

South African President Kgalema Motlanthe said the crisis was so serious that Zimbabwe could implode and collapse. He said the root cause was the lack of a legitimate government.
