One year ago Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa took office, ending Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule. But the euphoria that gripped the nation has disappeared as the new government struggles to address economic challenges.

It has been a year since longtime Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe was forced to end his 37-year rule, following pressure from the military, protesters, and looming impeachment in parliament.

On November 14, 2017 tanks rolled on the streets of the capital Harare as thousands protested, calling for Mugabe's ouster, after he removed then-Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mugabe was placed under house arrest, forcing him to step down on November 21.

The news was greeted by wild celebrations across the country, with even lawmakers chanting and rejoicing in parliament.

But 12 months later, some Zimbabweans are disappointed, saying little has changed in their country.
