  1. Will Zimbabweans ever breathe? This is so heartbreaking. The tax burden has already been ridiculous and now they have choked us more. Come on.

  2. It’s plain criminal. Theft of people’s very livelihoods. I am not sure they have enough prisons to accommodate us for failure to pay taxes.

  3. Is the 2% tax on electronic transaction scraped or still on.
    If still on then, Zimbabweans are the most taxed people in the world.
