Zimbabwe is not likely to meet the Millennium Development Goals or MDGs set by world leaders in 2000 to eradicate poverty, according to a Zimbabwean activist.

Tatenda Murima of the Zimbabwe United Nations Association (ZUNA) was at UN Headquarters in New York recently for an NGO meeting on Post-2015 agenda.

The year 2015 is the deadline the leaders set for achieving the MDGs and now discussions have started on what should be the agenda after that year.

UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha caught up with Tatenda Murima and first asked him about the work of his organization.
