About 220 kilometres southwest of Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, lies the town of Redcliffe. Once the nerve centre of the Zimbabwean steel industry, this city now resembles a ghost town.
Equal Times arrived in Redcliffe on a Wednesday in February at 09.00 on a hot morning. Years ago, at this hour, we would have found it bursting with activity, when the nearby factory produced tons of steel every hour. Today it is enveloped by a disturbing calm.
