Biti who was the minister of finance during the Government National Unity (GNU) told supporters,

We want to join Rand Monetary Union (RMU).We will use the Rand in the country and see where it will take us to.

The secret to the success of this country is that we have our brand Morgan Tsvangirai who is trusted all over the world. Economics is about confidence and trust. The Mnangagwa government has kwashiorkor ye (of) trust and confidence.

I went to America with Chamisa and Zanu PF cried but we were invited there because the international community trusts and has confidence in the MDC Alliance.

  1. We should clearly explain to people what we mean about using the Rand of South Africa. We need somebody from the Ministry of Finance, shadow Minister, to explain to people what really happens to the money donated by other countries.
    It gives confidence to the people of Zimbabwe when such statements come from the money people themselves.

  2. its not possible to join the rand monetary union without having our own currency, The monetary sector is going down because of these experiments ,It will take time for the public to have confidence because it seems these are all try and error solutions

  3. That’s a pity a statement like that coming from a former Finance minister. I say, that would be a grave error adopting South African Money. Currently South Africa is having its own issues politically and economically. Corruption issues in South Africa which were adopted from Zimbabwe by Zimbabwean South Africans can still erode the system. Rather, for people who are familiar with South Africa would agree with me that South Africa is on its road to Zimbabwean situation, so, Minister Biti, we will be going forward in a backward way. Rather, lets going back to the US$ will give us liverage considering that we need extensive imports to rescusitate our industries and create new industries. US$ has worked tremendously for us, anybody can agree. Besides, we hedged our Bond Note on US$, isn’t it. Why would we risk adopting a lessor value currency. Mune Finance chaidzo here aBiti?
