  1. So ED, why don’t you introduce the “raft of economic reforms”, not those stupid things like: banning the use of forex, not making any money/cash available at the banks, 2% levy on all transactions.? Your finance Minister is the biggest fraud in Africa at the moment. Where did you get the forex from to charter an airliner to fly you and your 60 useless ministers and aids who all want USD$5000 per day? Hey, where did you get all that money from? At least USD3-4 million, but you will come with nought. You always do.
