ZANU is intolerant of criticism, even from within. This is why it had to go through a coup to get rid of Mugabe.

Furthermore change doesn't exist in the vocabulary of ZANU. Barring deaths and cosmetic surgery the same people in top posts today were the same people in 1980.

The gains during the GNU period, the only period when progress was seen, was reversed immediately after ZANU restarted sole stewardship of Zimbabwe

Therefore joining hands with ZANU is a non starter

The devaluation of the ZWL$ is a positive for employers and business pple becoz it makes cost of labour, electricity etc very cheap. So those who make noise think a strong currency is a panancea to an economy recovery are lost. All in all we wish our country and pray for better fortunes. We cannot be devided by noisemaker who came from across the Border be it Zambia or Malawi. If things are tuff in Zim why dont follow your fellows. pasi nanasatani you deserve no respect at all.

@Hoko, only temporarily do those benefits last. Look at the mining sector. Only last week they were offered 208% wage and salary increases which they rejected.

This I'd why utilities such as electricity transport, fuel etc are going up in sympathy with depreciation.

Bread, which was ZW$1 in 1998 is now +/-ZW$600 whereas in US$ terms it has remained around $1 (at some stage it had gone down to US75c)

The only truth I know is Zanu PF. Inflation is being dealt with. I can't support a party like CCC whose only monetary policy is using a currency that is not ours. Let's support independence, having our own currency 💵. This inflation thing is minor. I don't support puppets. Sell outs,noo.

These guys have tried all tricks in economics, but they have failed. What is their next move when they have exhausted all procedures ? They tried to force all combis to join ZUPCO. They forced all companies not to borrow. They alleged that there were subotuers. They tried to arrest the suboteurs. They failed to arrest even one suboteur. They must just admit that they are a complete failures and let others come in.

you know what's surprising is that the govt is advocating for Zim dollar use yet watch vp uyo gave funeral assistance in US dollar to that Chief who passed on

it beats common sense they say this and do otherwise

walk the talk

the general public is supposed to do as they yet the same people are breaking the same rules day n nite zvorevei

being patriotic doesn't mean subscribing to irresponsible policies

it takes a mature person to admit failure and seek help

each and every day there are excuses
regime change

so if the opposition is sabotaging the economy why can't the ruling party then do the good since they are in govt?

kana opposition ichikwanisa kugadzika economy pasi saka zvoreva opposition is more powerful than the so called ruling party

the naked truth is corruption simple

today jail 5 well connected elites and u will see black market inodzika fast

just five start with delish, obert mpofu, tagwirei, nick mangwana, chinamasa and mutsvangwaz uwone kuti Zim dollar harisimuke here

We are a few hours from June. The bullish Tendayi Biti accurately predicted that come June the $ will be @ 1:500 on the grey market. And as sure as the sun rises from the East by December we will be trading at 1:1000. By that time Musuli Ncube will be VP if he does not succumb to BP.

@Blue I am my own master. I am not a puppet.
Since 1998 I have NOT been an employee. Pity that most of my clients either went under or migrated out of Zimbabwe since the collapse of the economy from early 2000 onwards.
