WATCH: Mthuli Ncube’s Response On Being Asked The Price Of Bread

A section of Zimbabwean citizens has condemned Finance and Economic Development, Mthuli Ncube for being “detached” from the reality of the hardships people are experiencing.

On being asked by his interviewer on what the price of a loaf of bread is, Mthuli simply said, “it is whatever it is, so?”. After being told that it costs $6.50, his reply was, “so?”

Glen Sungano Mpani: “When you are detached from reality, stay in a hotel, family in Europe away from day to day lived reality how would you know the price of bread? Public officials should live, school and be treated in a country to get a shared perspective on day to day challenges of survival.”

Chipo Dendere: “This might be a non-issue but why is Mthuli sitting like that? Is he trying to take a nap? Is the chair too big for him? They told us he was polished but Maiwe! He must respect us and the taxpayer money that he gets every month. Zimbabweans this is your employee-sitting like so?”

Hamenoikoko had this to say: “The arrogance… next time we need leaders with humility and concern for issues that are “below” them even if they don’t feel the pinch. Mthuli doesn’t have to struggle to feed his family, many other Zimbabweans don’t know where their next meal is coming from.”

Another disgusted user, TKats, “The way he sits during this interview speaks volumes on its own about how he is not taking the discourse seriously”.

  1. Total disrespect …let us be reminded …. the people of this country were defrauded by barbican bank …. defrauded by him and RBZ re the 1:1 us$ con . Must we sit and wait for his next trick ? Even ED must be doubting his choice for min of finance

  2. He was sitting relaxing, chilling and kicking back from all the hard work he has not been doing… when suddenly he was asked a question, a question about a loaf of bread no less, he was stunned by such impudence that he fell backwards into his chair

  3. How did ED connect with the economic destroyer to reside in europe while resident in a hotel in zim-7 star.bread has risen from $1 to $10 in 9 mths. what then 2030

  4. I find it absurd to expect any Minister anywhere in the world to know the exact prices of goods and services under their ministry, worse still under other ministries! The person who asked the question was being mischievous, or is totally ignorant of how government works, or both. The question should have been posed to Minister Simangaliso Ndlovu because it his his ministry that has direct interaction with prices! I guess we are all parading our lack of education!

  5. You are mad..you need to have your head examined.. these are basics just like the price of petrol which he cant run away from. You are parading your stupidity or you are one of these zanu ediots.

    1. I am entitled to my opinion based on my knowledge and experience of how the government functions. We are all for democracy, and are free to express our views. You do not have the right to ask for my brain to be examined because I clearly know a lot more than you! Insults will never solve problems, but are an indication of how shallow minds work!

  6. Mhofo ????? I would expect any minister to be up ti speed with the affairs of this country… especially the min of finance ….what excuse have u got for his arrogance ? Look how he sits …? Like at a beer hall

    1. Remember, arrogance is relative! It depends at which level you are looking at things. I am entitled to my own opinion based on my experience – that’s democracy!

  7. Arrogance is arrogance … corruption is corruption …. what experience is needed to identify these two evils ?????? So obvious .

  8. Mhofu is as arrogant as all the other ZanuPF bigwig thieves. I bet he is not interested in the price of a loaf of bread or even the price of fuel; he probably doesn’t ever queue for bread or fuel. Ntuli is sitting like he is because he is a thieving lying fatcat.

  9. There was an assumption because of his status and education he would turn the economy round. The truth is Zanu is still following its normal business as usual. Ncube has always been a thief. Living in Europe hasn’t changed it. He has become more arrogant as he feels confident he is superior. Mhofu you keep falling on democracy and opinion when criticism is directed to what you said. But you were 1st to imply people with a different opinion to you are uneducated!

  10. Let’s look at our fellow Tanzanian President Maghufuli he don’t wait to hear frm th MP he gets on th ground nd see wht is happening…..This th kind of pple we want for Africa to move frm where we r…..Ministers nd MP who feed on tax payers money busy looting instead of discharging their duties they were voted for th ones we hv most of them they don’t care about those who voted them…..most of them u will see them again wen it’s time for election looking to be voted bck…..its really a shame tht we hv pple leading us who r so disconnected to wht is happening in front of their nose…..very shame Stereki.
