  1. They are trying to find a way for Econet to raise forex. There’s probably no option to buy forex, only sell. It’s no different from our banks, you watch someone sell them money. But, when you want to buy suddenly there’s either no money or endless paperwork to be filled/provided.

  2. It’s rubbish anyways as your charges for using that ecocash is so high you will just be basically giving back strive a portion of the few cents you think you have gained,,,,Econet is just a rip off how do you think they got so wealthy,,,,,,,conned the people so so many times,,,,,if anyone remembers they had a life insurance that disappeared over night even they kwese after selling people stuff that don’t work anymore,,,,,airtime just disappearing if anyone remembers,,,,,,it’s always some sort of loss for clients while Econet becomes bigger by taking advantage of the countries situation

    1. @Jason. You can not do away with money transfer charges regardless of who you use.
      This represents a safer way of exchanging forex rather than with informal money changers
