ConCourt ruling on bond notes welcome
EDITOR — The Constitutional Court`s ruling on bond notes, throwing out Joice Mujuru`s attention seeking challenge, is welcome to the public.
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor Dr John Mangudya prior to the court case had made it clear that the bond notes are a proposed interim resolve to ease the current cash crunch.
Instead what does Mujuru do? She goes on to place a challenge at the ConCourt speculating that the bond notes are a backdoor reintroduction of the Zimbabwean dollar.
Rightly, the challenge was thrown out as premature and speculative. Claims by Mujuru and her camp that the Reserve Bank Act was breached were inaccurate as the Constitutional Court has ruled.
It seems Mujuru does not put people first as she claims because if she did, she would welcome the bond notes as people are queueing outside banks trying to withdraw their money.
If their plight doesn’t move her then her People First claims are mere politicking, putting her in the same category as charlatans like Mkwananzi and Mawarire who make unnecessary noise by fighting lost battles with a sitting Government.
We do not require such clowns disturbing our efforts to rectify an economic problem created by their colleague Morgan Tsvangirai who begged for sanctions from his Western backers.
As expected, opposition parties and pseudo-activists who have nothing to offer to the national development agenda, will try and derail any innovation to that end.
Their biggest fear is that as soon as things are flowing in this country they will be irrelevant in the public domain.
Such destructive behaviour needs to be plucked out and I am happy that the ConCourt has managed to silence Mujuru and her lawyers who were trying to bank on a technicality. Farai Denhe
