Speaking in Parliament, Marondera Central MP Lawrence Katsiru (Zanu PF) claimed that brand new notes were being traded at Roadport by money dealers saying Chinamasa must look into the issue, which had contributed to shortages of money at the country’s banks.
Finance minister, Patrick Chinamasa said his ministry will look into the issue. Said Chinamasa:
The issue is going to be investigated. What I know is that any bond notes issued are issued to commercial banks and not to individuals. What could be happening is that some people are issued with brand new bond notes when they withdraw at banks, and these will end up at Roadport in exchange for United States dollars.
