The regime will this week introduce a new Zimbabwe currency not backed by any #reserves & without the context of structural reforms which a prerequisite of currency reform . That move is pure undiluted #insanity . An unbanked currency is just the #bond note by another name.

  3. We are ready for it, we brace ourselves once again hoping for a better outcome . We better try than never , we all want a better Zimbabwe but we can not do that whilst using another nation s currency as our local currency . We better try , it might be painful and needs a lot of sacrifices but we stil need some light for a better economy for the next generation .

  5. Total collapse of the system. I don’t know what will make new currency work whilst the zw bond$ failed. Will the new currency be traded in foreign banks?? This is just day light robbery to the citizens of Zimbabwe Mr government. You don’t have your people at heart.
