Transparency will start when RBZ give the Nation a list of companies that are allocated foreign currency at their auction floor.

Companies tell employees they cant purchase raw material because they are failing to get forex from the RBZ auction floor, RBZ should prove to the Nation by giving the list period...

Right now, a dollar is being changed for the Zim dollar at multiple rates. Some say 360, others s340 and some 390. Clear indication that we are killing our own currency. The RBZ loosened it's geip on the exchange rate, now everyone in the Black market is confused. Selfishness is killing This country
