    Why pegging in US dollars while they are always preaching and forcing us to use Rtgs n bond notes.

      It’s illegal to peg in USD, you are supposed to peg in ZWL with an option to pay in USD @ prevailing rate. But, government and parastatals do the reverse all the time. Hence the constant inflation of ZWL fees, due to “movements in the exchange rate” instead of the USD fee becoming cheaper. Kwete izvi zvekuti tank razara.

      Expecting everything to increase prices, as electricity has gone up. The gvt will have some sleepless nights as all their policies seem to come back and haunt them. We are now in 2008 upgraded.

      Why peg them in ZWL when costs incurred are in USD

      1. Maxwell Christian

        ZWL is the official currency of ZW and not the US$. Do all the people in ZW earn US$??? I may as well ask you why exporters are paid partly in local currency when they aern the revenue in US$.

      The price looks more reasonable in those figures… Printing them in ZWD /ZWL or whatever they want to call it, makes it look ridiculous. They also pay their brass in USD, as they won’t accept anything else. It’s another zpf rip-off, which has become the norm, but which has no chance of being fixed, no thanks to zpf incompetence, voter apathy, greedy stupids doing all they can to keep their mercs ‘n perks intact at the expense of the nation, and the fact that citizens have allowed Zimbabwe to go down the tubes since 1985, without so much as a squeak of protest, in past elections…

    Its surprising, salaries are pegged in RTGS so how do they expect us as Zimbabweans to survive?????

  3. Herbert Mudarikwa

    If salaries are pegged in RTGS , it becomes very unfair to charge electricity in USD .

  4. Damn It

    Kkkk damn, we f**ked. Zimbabwe marubbish🛃

        Voting is one thing, stopping vote rigging another entirely. It also helps to have someone competent waiting in the wings as well… Cde Chamisa has kept his one seat, which won’t achieve that change on its own, neither will voter apathy or where rigging is ignored or condoned… Proven facts.
