Strive Masiyiwa: “ED is sincere.”

Zimbabweans: “Masiyiwa stop getting cozy with ZanuPf.”
ED’s ZanuPf: “Ban Ecocash!”

This comrades, coupled with recent political happenings now requires less press statements & more street action statements!@Mamoxn#PeoplePower #ZanupfMustGo pic.twitter.com/m2bjTMcoPk

This statement has no force of law in any case. Without the backing of a valid legal instrument, it’s hot air. That said, if it’s a foreboding of what’s to come, your Govt will have shown yet again a huge capacity to destroy property rights. You cannot be trusted with anything. https://t.co/InOeBNWHDB

More drama as mobile money transactions are suspended immediately as Mnangagwa’s regime attempts to control the exchange rate!

This will simply stop the economy from working.

The regime should implement Political Reforms that will fix the economy through production not this! pic.twitter.com/u9a4hSQzAj

1. The Mnangagwa regime has issued a decree banning the use of mobile money & the stock market. A garrulous statement by Secretary Mangwana reads like a criminal charge-sheet. It’s thrown the kitchen sink at mobile money companies with EcoCash as the principal target. pic.twitter.com/8PBvyS4vFs
