One Comment on “RBZ Foreign Currency Auction Results: 28 September 2021

  1. Aaaaagh shame, man, the value of the Zim dollar fell by 70 cents! We could be in for a really rough ride because of that – fuel price will go up by USD$,80, bread will go up by 15%, inflation may rise by 60%. Oh, what a shame, poor Zimbabwe. I wonder what Mtuli Nube will have to say when he eventually comes back from the USA.
