Civil society organisations have demanded that Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor John Mangudya should resign like he promised when he advocated for bond notes. Mangudya promised that he would resign if bond notes failed and the civil groups contend that the bond notes have failed.
The spokesperson for the organisations, Pastor Evan Mawarire of This Flag Movement said:

The Honorable governor of the Reserve Bank is on record committing to us during a citizens’ meeting that he would resign if the bond notes failed.
Bond notes have completely failed. We challenge the governor of the Reserve Bank to honour his word and resign as he promised to do in the event of failure.
