The new $2, $5 notes flood the black market a day after release.
Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe injected $1 billion into the market to ease cash shortages in the country and permitted a maximum of ZW$300 a week per the ordinary person.
However the cash was displaced into all banks in the country to allow withdrawal, but by end of the day, the new notes had flooded the black market, with cash dealers in possession of ‘still sealed' blocks of new notes.
The mere citizen still has not had had access to the new notes.
Social media is awash with questions of how the money got into the hands of the cash dealers.
