Independent legislator for Norton Temba Mliswa has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to take charge of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development until things stabilise. Mliswa said that current minister, Mthuli Ncube was playing with people’s lives due to his inconsistencies. Mliswa also echoed former Finance Minister Tendai Biti’s sentiments that Mthuli Ncube’s predecessor Patrick Chinamasa seems to be a better choice.
There have been shortages of basic goods and prices of the commodities have been rising while foreign currency exchange rates have been spiralling ever since Mthuli Ncube and Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) governor John Mandgudya made policy announcements when presenting the fiscal policies and the mid-term monetary policy.
Writing on Twitter, Mliswa said
It’s about time President Emmerson Mnangagwa puts (the) Ministry of Finance under his ambit until things stabilise, he’s capable. Mthuli Ncube has displayed too many policy inconsistencies and must stop playing with the country. If this is what Mthuli Ncube is about then Patrick Chinamasa was better!
