The Zimbabwe Cross Border Traders Association has advised Minister of Finance and Economic Development Mthuli Ncube to charge duty in foreign currency for all Zimbabwe nationals who are based outside the country. The association also suggested that all foreigners bringing in containers of goods should pay for duty for the goods in foreign currency. In a series of policy proposals, Zimbabwe Cross-Border Traders Association Killer Zivhu said,

If they are unregistered investors, these foreign nationals must also declare with Zimra how they are going to take the capital they generate within our borders back to their countries…Zimbabweans living in the Diaspora must also pay duty in forex. When they come into the country, they burn their forex to acquire bond notes, which they then use to pay duty at the border…So, for example, if you are based in South Africa, you ought to pay duty in Rand. If they fail to pay duty in forex, their goods must be forfeited to discourage the smuggling of goods into the country.

    Bunch of crooks. Idiots. Punishing people that are working hard and earning an honest leaving so that you can line the pockets of your greedy and bloodthirsty comrades. Your days are numbered!

    Inga mave kudziya muviri. Zvarwadza ka kuvhitera pasipo. Kuda kushungurira vakatizawo nhamo. Kutobatsira mhuri dziri kushungurudzwa nehurumende isingakwanisi. Kwanai imi macross border kwere-kwere. Kutodawo kuzvipa zita kwaro. Tikwanirei zvedu

    a welcome concern, but calmness and wisdom very critical..Nevertheless the standing state financial and customs and duty regulatory frameworks are legally the ones to be complied with for nationals and internationals. Just make sure this doesnt translate into a myopic game of targetting and discriminating the innocent through an abuse of power by those who wield it.
