Friday, December 12, 2008

A cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe is growing worse with no clean water available and little medical care available.
According the Zimbabwe Prez Robert Mugabe a recent and devastating cholera outbreak in his crumbling country has come to an end. But aid workers, health experts and international doctors say nothing could be further from the truth. With contaminated water sources and a non-existent medical system already at least 800 are dead and they fear tens of thousands are at risk. Joining us for more is BBC correspondent Jonah Fisher in neighboring South Africa.
