Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister, Professor Mthuli Ncube in October 2018 said that he needed only six months to transform Zimbabwe.
He said that his policies would start to bear tangible results after six months. Ncube said:
If you give me six months, you will see changes, significant changes.
I have only been a Minister for one month. We need patience, we know what we are doing. What I can say to Zimbabweans is that they should give me six months to see the full impact of the changes from the policies that we have pursued.
It is over a year now since he said those words. It seems Zimbabwe’s economy continues to collapse despite a cocktail of measures by authorities meant to transport the country.
Inflation has been rising whilst shortages in cash, fuel, water, medicines, food, and electricity are still huge in the country.
