        1. Depends on how you are looking at it. A move from 325 to 338 is a loss of value of the Zim dollar against usd so it correct to say the rate dropped. If you look purely from a point t of numerical value of the numbers then it does not make sense.

    1. Ku compare US dollar ne bond zvakangofanana nemujolo,at the end shiri inozongofa.. from 1:1 to 1 :360
