Zimbabweans reacting to the launch of Bond Notes on social media say that despite all the debate going on off and online, the success or failure of Bond Notes will be be decided on the streets.
Commenting on the campaign for the acceptance of Bond Notes started by the Reserve Bank this week, prominent social media opinion leader, Ranga Mberi said the fate of the bond notes lies in the streets where Hwindis and Vendors will be the ultimate jury:
After all the fancy analyses around bond notes, their success or failure will ultimately be decided on the streets; by vendors and hwindis.
