Top govt officials believed EcoCash was a plot to oust Mugabe says Gono

Former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor, Gideon Gono has said that top Zanu PF officials believed that Ecocash was a scheme to oust President Robert Mugabe.

Said Gono:

This trash of a report on Ecocash was surprisingly accepted as gospel truth in some circles and structures of the country with some senior government officials swallowing its contents hook line and sinker. At that time in Zimbabwe, understood the concept of mobile money and were easily manipulated. The effect was to draw daggers against me and I became a marked man.
