    Zimbabwe's stock market has shed $6bn and its main index has slumped by 40 percent since last Wednesday, when the military seized power, which led to Robert Mugabe's resignation as president.

    Many are now hoping that Emmerson Mnangagwa, who will be sworn in as president on Friday, will turn the economy around and curb the country's huge unemployment crisis.

    Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller reports from the town of Goromonzi, where she spoke to people about their hopes for the future.
