Chamisa's Proposed Measures To Stabilise The Economy

Chamisa's Proposed Measures To Stabilise The Economy

Nelson Chamisa who leads the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has proposed a number of measures which he said could stabilise the economy. The measures were issued in response to the 2022 Mid-term Budget Review that was recently announced by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube which he said failed to address pertinent issues. Pindula News presents an excerpt from Chamisa’s Twitter thread:

The following must be done immediately:

a) Dollarisation which will immediately eliminate distortions, forward pricing and multiple pricing;

b) Restoration of the US$540 as a starting salary;

c) Holistic tax reform. Reduce the tax burden on citizens and the business in general. As part of the tax reforms, we will remove the 2% tax and streamline taxes; d)Remove distortions esp in the agricultural sector and construction sectors which has created a casino economy

e) The elimination of the Currency Auction and reforming the RBZ through limiting the power of the central bank. Separating the roles of central banking and financial services supervision.

f) Reforming the budgetary process, so that the budget comes from parliament and not from ministry of Finance. The budget must come from the Citizens -a Citizens-centered budget.

g) Radically dealing with the corruption pandemic and instituting special mechanisms to eliminate and punish the corrupt.

h) Holding credible, free and fair elections preceded by a comprehensive pact on electoral reforms.

i) Only a leadership change will rescue our beautiful country and in no time turn and transform this Zimbabwe from ruins to greatness. We are new leaders. #RegisterToVoteZW

Talk is cheap. Cheap talk. When you get into government the reality will humble you, ask Mthuli Ncube.The majority of citizens are in the informal sector meaning tax compliance remains low.

Dollarise??? It failed during GNU and will certainly fail again now.
What Zimbabwe needs is a trusted authority/gvt and all will fall in place.
Zim dollar is not stable because people don't trust the gvt that's why they chase the USD because they don't know what the value of the Zim dollar will be the next day. Couple that with production to reduce imports. We are basically an Agric economy but we are importing basic food stuffs, it's complete madness. Instead of command Agric those funds should be invested in fertiliser production and other inputs so that they become affordable at the same time creating employment of local people. Imports promote employment in exporting countries

I have a mental diarrhoea dude, hauna zvaunoziva empty vessel. Zim produces grade 1 categories of farm produce fresh or dry but problem vakuru vedu vanoita makasi nechikafu they export mega n mega tonnes of first grade maize n wheat every year then kana magufe avanoitisiira azopera kuGMB they will import cheap grains rated in grade C to D for us then voba profit inobuda iwe ndopaunoti hatisi kugona kurima uri benzi.

2. I don't know if you were alive during the GNU Era which you said dollarization was a failure, am sure you were admitted at Ingutheni or at Gomahuru because dollarization was a success. Dzimba dzakavakwa we witnessed the emergence of new residential stands, people bought vihecles and started businesses etc...

let's take notes from Zambia Hichilima is doing great job with just few months in office, alot has changed in Zambia.
Zambia is now favourable than some countries, Hechilima has placed his county on the global map again it's now visible for all.
Just few months in office many reforms he implemented are for the people for he is seeing the need for change for people.
The Kwacha is now powerful in value than rand we always appraise that simple shows that his doing a good job interms of economic turn around.

Take notes there Zambians are now the Canaan of Africa, believe it or not.
11000 plus jobs were created for the teachers and more.

The question is can we go back to be the bread basket of Africa?

Chamisa must come up with something better than this.Complete dollarisation is not as simple as people might think,there are a lot of modalities involved and it also comes up with its own disadvantages which we have to factor in also. i dot see how Cutting taxes will solve the economic problems in ZW. How does he propose the gvt gets the USD to benchmark USD540 as the minimum salary. We need practical policy alternatives from Chamisa not merely critiqueing the current
gvt policies

Those are his priorities when he gets into power, how he achieves it has alot to do with his vibrant, which includes (but not limited to) Biti, Ncube Welshman, Coltart ZanuPf is all used up now and don't expect anything meaningful from the Septurians and Octurians lot except corrupt tendencies aligned with making their children successors of the country

Chamisa can not be trusted, especially with the promise he made to us that he will provide a bullet train that take 30 minutes from Harare to Bulawayo.Even the British were shocked because they don't even have such a train.

Dollarisation work there is a lot of USdollars in Zimbabwe but they are being kept under pillow by individuals, look at the robberies of individuals, amounts which robbers are walking away with plus the USD package for every civil servant, mine workers, those with shallow minds are the ones who believe that Zim economy can't dollarise. Almost all the elites, bus operators, fuel garage owners and top Zanu Pf officials have lots of dollars under their roofs.

Chamisa is a **** ****. He doesn't have a single valid point to stabilize economy. A country normally working must have its own currency. If you use foreign currency you become too dependent. If America decides to print fiat that is backed by nothing as they always do they will milk all your resources. They will milk all the oil from our motherland. His puppet ideas are just neo colonial rubbish. I thought he would take notes from Colonel Gaddaffi who made his country's economy most successful and better than Europe before Americans caused chaos.

Americans are not interested in your 2 gallons of oil. They have plenty of theirs plus enough from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Think tank. Zvimaboss. takadzitawo ecoz idzi. not Magudya and Mtuli


If you read Advocate Nelson Chamisa's comments, you yern if he was His Excellency in power now.

His comments show the head and the tail. One sees where he is going and coming from than the Mangudya's and the Ncube's financial reviews which were full of distortions.

It is false that dolarisation failed during the GNU government. To the contrary, our economy mashroomed during the GNU.

The economy started to falter with the coming in of the so called second administration of His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa in 2018. He dropped the use of usd and adopted the Zimbabwe dollar and pegged their ratio at Zim 1:1 Usd. Look at where we are today !!!!.

United States dollars are everywhere in Zimbabwe. Listen and read how much USD are robbed daily from underneath pillows at homes. Citizens are not banking their usd in Mangugya's and Ncube's banks.

Some diasporans are also withholding their money because of Zimbabwe's fragile economy.

Let us be realistic. Diasporans and other serious international investors can not invest in a country where its full cabinet approves deals like Pomona deal and Belarus Firefighters deal !!!!! [ KUORA MUSORO KWE HOVE KAUKU ? ].
