Charamba Justifies Mnangagwa’s Lie Concerning $100 Million UK Loan

Posted by Tayana Read 7 Comments

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba justified his boss’ lie that the United Kingdom advanced a $100 million loan to Zimbabwe to ease the current cash crisis.

Charamba said Mnangagwa was aware that the loan was a line of credit for the private sector. He however said Mnangagwa was right to say that the loan will ease cash shortages because there is a direct link between the loan and improvement of the cash situation in Zimbabwe. Said Charamba:

Above all, the facility has the effect of increasing capacity utilisation in the economy including ramping up our exports thereby improving foreign currency receipts. If one considers that the bond note is in fact a surrogate currency, which is linked to our foreign exchange reserves, it’s pretty obvious that there is a direct link between the $100 million facility and the improvement of the liquidity situation in the country. When politicians are addressing public meetings, within a given time frame, the expectation is that certain connections which are so obvious should be made by those whose duty it is to build knowledge and convey information with completeness.

    Charamba- Lying is the DNA of ZANU why shouldn’t he just say the truth. Why does ZANU want to fool the people? Well, we have been fooled for 38 years and how about the 2 million jobs in 2013? ZANU accuses the opposition of lying yet you are the government which should showcase how many new jobs you have created, roads repairs, banks no longer have queues etc. not MOUs. Bussing school children to your rallies and rigging election. You still expect us to vote for you

      Why do you choose to show ypur ignorance of economics in this way?

      Here is a quote feom an economics 101 class:

      “Banks and money are intertwined. It is not just that most money is in the form of bank accounts. The banking system can literally create money through the process of making loans.”

      It is called the money mulplier effect. By extend loans banls can create more times the money printed by a government. Search any elementary economics textbook that you may understand this simple peinciple that Charamba did not quite explain

    George is absolutely right I will basically explain it to the thick minded people when the the private sector gets this money they do not put it under the pillow it will be in circulation. Yes the truth hurts I was shocked when one member of the Opposition complained why Britain was helping Zimbabwe the same people even called for Sanctions to stay in place for what to extend the suffering of people and give their flipping dreamboy instant coffee Chamisa to win ? The road to state house is not as easy you want to think he must sharpen his negotiating skills and acknowledge what other man have achieved as for George being out of work Chamisa would do hellsite better if he had people like George advising him instead of the dead would he surrounds himself with I went to school with that man he is a quiet and bright boy good at what he does let’s see the fragmented alliance come up with candidates and form a government kanzato kanzato means they are acknowledging non of the can stand against ED on their own vote wisely Mdc has squables and they always get around this by splitting further imagine if they were a government they need to show they can unit for a same purpose of progressing Zimbabwe not individualistic selfish agenda voting for a person because he is young is a very incompetent way of campaigning
