The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has dismissed reports that it has established people’s shops in the form of a wholesale and retail market in Harare. In a statement, the RBZ said:
The RBZ wishes to take this opportunity to advise the public to disregard the fake message as it creates unnecessary anxiety to unsuspecting members of the public. This is unwarranted cyber abuse of social media.
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe would like to advise members of the public that the message currently circulating on social media purporting that there is a People’s Wholesale and Retail market at 80 Samora Machel Avenue, is fake and misleading.
80 Samora Machel Avenue is the Headquarters of the Reserve Bank Of Zimbabwe.
Mischievous fellows could have taken advantage of the government’s announcement that it has plans to establish people’s shops to counter what it considers unscrupulous business practices.
Number 80 Samora Machel Avenue is actually the headquarters of the Central Bank.
