The government has rubbished rumors that a new Zim currency is in the works.
This follows after claims by former finance minister Tendai Biti revealed that the government will introduce a new Zimbabwe currency this week.
Social media influencer Acie Lumumba also said that Zimbabweans should brace themselves for a new local currencywhich will be coming later on this month.
However the government said no such thing will take place.
“Govt has noted with concern falsehoods coming from some political quarters claiming that Zimbabwe will issue new currency next week. This needs to be dismissed with the contempt it deserves. This has no base in fact or reality. It’s unfounded Fake News” they tweeted via the ministry of information
It certainly looks like people’s hopes and anticipation have been dashed amid the need for a reprieve as the country faces hyper inflation and cash crisis.
