Most of the search traffic that occurred in Zimbabwe saw a spike from August 2017 as many events were happening around the country, most leading to Zimbabwe getting a new president. This is probably why most of the search data has to do with the political figures that were involved in the ‘non-coup’ rather than the usual things like TV shows.

If you would like to take a look at the data more closely, you can visit the Google Trends for Zimbabwe website.

Otherwise, let us know what you think about this data. Did you also search for such in 2017? What did you think would be the most searched person, term or the most asked question on Google in Zimbabwe?
