Right now, Twitter is awash with comments about yesterday’s court ruling on the 2% tax. Take a look at just a few of the comments
What a arrogant message from one who clearly is now basking in the illusion of invincibility shared by all in Zanupf. That tax is punitive and unjustifiable considering the failure of the state to provide us with the option of cash for those that want to avoid it. Respect us!

We all knew the 2% transaction tax was daylight robbery. Now the Junta want to use the High Court ruling to push a narrative that Courts are not captured. With/out court the 2% transaction tax was punitive to our people given the current economic circumstances.

Now that the High Court has ruled the 2% tax blatantly illegal, will the THIEF Mthuli kindly start making plans to PAY BACK OUR MONEY?

2% transaction tax robbery is unlawful, says the High Court in agreement with arguments by Advocate Biti @BitiTendai who is Vice President of the MDC @MDCAllianceZW. You can't tax your way to prosperity. @MthuliNcube must be jailed for the public robbery he has been engaged in.

I've never seen such an arrogant, selfish, heartless. Dictatorship continues even after Mugabe is gone. You have joined the command way of thinking.

Dear @MthuliNcube . Please let me know how you propose to repay me all the 2% taxes illegally deducted from my account prior to the promulgation of the Finance Act. I suspect several million taxpayers would also like to know. Yours faithfully, David Coltart #Zimbabwe

His rude letter misses the point spectacularly. All his tax deductions levied prior to the 2019 amendment of the Finance Act were illegal.
Who will recompense tax payers for all the taxes he unlawfully deducted in 2018? He has a duty to act lawfully per s68 of the Constitution. https://t.co/rvlv7VHE7i
