Year on Year inflation is spiraling from 131.7 in May 2022 to 191.6 in June 2022. Minister Mthuli Ncube has failed His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa. I think he had great expectations when he engaged him. But what boggles my mind is why he has not off loaded him.

Inflation rate is a Western sponsored puppet.It defies logic that even though Nyika ichivakwa nevene vayo this virus called inflation seems untamable.We have rigged everything except this amphibious vehicle called inflation. We call upon the Youths and Women's League to unite and conquer this epidemic.And maybe the Treasury guru Mthuli Ncube needs reorientation at Chitepo School of Ideology. Nyika yaparara takatarisa mhanduwee.

ZIMSTAT needs reorientation. They have been infiltrated by western sponsored imperialist opposition CCC to sabotage our stabilising economy by bogus statistics aimed at derailing our mighty economic resurgence

We need to send our guys there to ensure that they are not tempering with figures at the instigation of neo colonial imperialist agents masquerading as NGOs
