Speaking during the breakfast engagement with bankers and captains of industry and commerce at State House in Harare yesterday, President Mnangagwa urged depositors not to worry over the value of their Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) balances and bond notes since Government is not phasing them out.
Mnangagwa said there is no policy change that to warrant people to panic over RTGS and bond notes value. Said Mnangagwa:
While the country is going through difficult times mainly because of lack of foreign currency to meet the growing demand for foreign exchange across all the sectors of the economy, I would like to assure you all that the current multicurrency system is here to stay. All your RTGS balances at banks and bond notes in circulation, are safe and secure. There should be no pressure to exchange or offload these balances as Government policy has not changed to warrant such anxiety.
