Chief Justice Luke Malaba has demanded that money changers operating around Tredgold which houses a number of courts in Bulawayo be dealt with, ZBC News reports
This came after Malaba toured the courts housed at Tredgold with, Ziyambi Ziyambi and July Moyo, and saw the money changers wandering around the building that houses the courts. Speaking to the publication, Malaba said:
To some extent, l don’t know how much this has been done, they can never be a marriage between illegality and justice.
They can never be a marriage between illegality and justice, so the activities of an illegal nature must never be part and parcel of justice system externally and internally. So we hope that in the surroundings of this building that are not wholesome must be stopped.
I don’t think we should have a compromise in that issue. I find it difficult in that you can have people allowing illegal changes of money outside this building sometimes inside them and seen as no problem at all. It should never be.
Illegal money changers have increased in numbers as the Zimbabwean dollar continues to lose value against the USD as many people need to buy or sell their money on a daily basis.
