'Returning Diasporans Should Be Levied US$50'

'Returning Diasporans Should Be Levied US$50'

A Dubai-based Zimbabwean businesswoman, Hanna Mutsenhu, has asked President Emmerson Mnangagwa to make it mandatory for all Zimbabwean citizens living abroad to pay a US$50 fee when they visit Zimbabwe.

Mutsenhu said that she has been in the United Arab Emirates for six years and runs a nursery in Dubai.

She said the US$50 contribution by every diasporan whenever they visit Zimbabwe will be used to develop the country.

Mutsenhu made the remarks during an interface with Mnangagwa on the sidelines of the World Expo being held in Dubai. She said:

Why can we not engage all diasporans when they are coming back home to contribute a certain amount on entry, for example, US$50.

Some countries are doing that; that will mean when I come back home I should leave US$50. It needs accountability towards the development of Zimbabwe.

You can take into consideration countries like the Philippines. When one goes back home they have to contribute something.

Mutsenhuโ€™s comments sparked debate on social media with critics arguing that she was offside as the Government has refused to recognise diasporansโ€™ right to vote in national elections even though they contribute to the countryโ€™s economy through remittances.

Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said in 2021, diaspora remittances were more than US$1 billion.

It's not everyone who's capable of paying such a levy, already much would have been spent on plane tickets and other stuff.

$50 is too little, some spend 50 years abroad, why not make it mandatory to pay $50 for every month not when they come home. Or maybe 50% of total diaspora earnings should be paid as Diaspora tax. We are losing a lot of trained staff who get paid handsomely for the education we give them here

Zimbabwe has very few diaporans. Those can pay, it should be at least $10000 USD. The rest are economic refugees who can't pay for returning home.

Allow diaspora vote first then you introduce that. Who will be the custodian of the money ? Where will it be kept? Who will be doing the allocation of the funds? Zanu, OLD PEOPLE'S HOME!! MBAVHA IDZI. Hakuna zvakadaro idyai yenyu yamakaba kare

we don't need another tax/ levy as we are already overtaxed and no one can account for these levies. look at the 2% transaction levy which was said to be a health fund.
which hospital has bee built or even refurbished. we can't keep oiling this useless regime
