It's too easy to predict this, but still disappointing: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/mon ... bably-not/

It's shitty how easily these developing countries have been stuck with either dictatorships or anarchy since gaining independence from colonial powers -- but it's understandable. There is no stability. There are deep important questions about the priority of democracy, stability, economic power and defense capability in modern nation-states. The stability of much of Western Europe and North America since the end of WW2 is pretty abnormal, but because that's where most of the money and media have been until recently (see: BRIC), it can be difficult to see why democracy just won't take in other places.

Probably the best we can hope for in Zimbabwe is some economic stability, since that's what they've had almost none of for Mugabe's tenure.
