Mnangagwa Threatens Banks With Closure Over Depreciating Zim Dollar

Mnangagwa Threatens Banks With Closure Over Depreciating Zim Dollar

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that several big companies and banks face closure for their complicity in sabotaging their economy through manipulating the exchange rate and unjustifiably raising the prices of goods and services.

Addressing a ZANU PF rally held in Epworth National Assembly Constituency on Saturday to celebrate Zalerah Makari’s by-election win, Mnangagwa said the companies and banks, which he did not name, were working with hostile foreign governments to weaken the Zimbabwe dollar. He said:

We have a challenge in our economy, especially around prices and exchange rates.

We are working out a solution, we are now closing in on companies that are behind what we have been witnessing lately.

These economic players are not acting alone, they are being sent by foreign countries hostile to Zimbabwe to weaken our local currency.

So we are devising methods to deal with them, we will close some big companies and banks. These will be announced in due course.

Over the past several weeks, the Zimbabwe dollar has been depreciating against major currencies on the parallel market resulting in a jump in prices of foodstuffs including bread, cooking and mealie meal among others.

Why is it that it is now a norm that Old People's Home government is issuing threats after threats to citizens and companies. ? These threats are issued at rallies. It is either citizens are threaned with death like "lice" or companies are threatened with closure. My interpretation is that of failure. These guys are showing signs of failure. Citizens must vote them out at Harmonised Elections in 2023 and replace them with CCC.

The only way out of this mess is GNU. Chamisa can win next year but these guys won't let him rule this country. So gud people those at the helm of CCC, advise vakomana to think about the people first. Lets form a GNU. We know that you met and talked about this matter, though you thought we were not going to know about it. Gvt of National Unity will do coz zvekuti CCC ipinde ku Statehouse havade.

Once bitten twice shy.
MDC went into GNU with ZANU and that gave ZANU breathing space to reorganize and re-strategise. This time, NEVER

Let ZANU stew in their own juices. Can't wait to see the backs of ZANU, geriatrics and their ilk, including VYBZ Ketero
