“Sharks Thriving On Black Market Are Frustrating Interbank Forex System”, Commerce Minister

Industry and Commerce Minister Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndlovu has said that some big companies were frustrating the success of the interbank forex market system. The minister noted that this was because they were getting big shares of foreign currency when the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe was allocating forex.

Ndlovu who was addressing delegates to the Bulawayo Zanu-PF Youth League one-day conference said:

We have sharks that are thriving on the black market and are doing all within their powers to suppress a smooth migration into a formal trading system where companies can access foreign currency from the interbank market.

These are the same big guys who were big beneficiaries of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe system of forex allocation. They are now seeing a situation whereby everyone is equal in the market and all that one needs is his or her RTGS money to buy foreign currency on the interbank market. This is the reason why they are now resorting to putting spanners in the works so that the system fails.

Minister Ndlovu further observed that instead of introducing price controls the Government would rather address factors fuelling price hikes such as the black market currency exchange rates which result in price distortions.

  1. You will always talk and talk with nothing to show on the ground -the truth is you dont have any clue you ZANU PF people u are useless and should just stepdown or better still die and leave capable people to run our country. You are very evil we are suffering just because of you.

  2. Why are they called big sharks in steady criminals simple. Their place in prison. I’m suprised our Minister has the courage of calling a press conference to tell us cheap words like that. He should discuss with commissioner of police and other security organ to end that practice
