In a press conference on Tuesday, MDC President Nelson Chamisa urged the Parliament of Zimbabwe to institute an inquiry into the ballooning national debt estimated to be over $16 billion.
Chamisa said the audit must reveal how the debt was acquired and what was it used for. Said Chamisa:
We call upon Parliament to institute a parliamentary inquiry into the fuel gate, domestic debt and treasury bills scandal. We call for an audit of the national debt to be done urgently and be indexed country by country, institution by institution and person by person. The national debt has astronomically ballooned. Today, this administration, through the new minister of finance revealed disquieting and chilling disclosures of the greedy in government. The government has added over $7 billion to the National debt in less than 5 years and $4 billion since November 2017 through treasury bills, of which we are told more than three quarters of that money went to a few people.
