Bankers Association of Zimbabwe CEO Sijabuliso Biyam spoke to Bloomberg and said:

The banking industry, just like the rest of the economy, will suffer negative growth this year, which could result in even more job cuts.The sector is now driven by technology. If the economy was doing well, those people who have been made redundant could have been redeployed elsewhere, but sadly that is not the case.
