It’s just ridiculous

TOP del.icio.us

A domestic worker earns who earns the equivalent of USD10.00 per month was paid by her employer Z$100,000,000,000.00 (100 trillion dollars at the parallel market rate).

With October’s cash withdrawal limit of $50,000.00 per day she would need to go to the bank 2,000,000 times (that’s two million days) in order to access all her salary.

With the current withdrawal limit of $500,000.00 per day she will have to go to the bank 200,000 times (that’s two hundred thousand days).

We do not have that many days in a year.

Now we all know that Mumbengegwi and his Prime Minister Gono (aka Governor of the Central Bank of Zimbabwe) have failed. But what l want to know from Hon Tendai Biti, who is the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Secretary for Finance and Economics, is this, what do you think about this situation and in the first 100 days in office, what will you do to change this? I really would like to know what concrete plans the MDC has to get us out of this mess as they go for the weekend talks in South Africa.

And please, enough of touting the “unlocking donor funding” spiel.

This is just ridiculous.
