GOVERNMENT’s decision to scrap SI 122 of 2017 is a master stroke that will obviously contain the price hike madness. We can’t be held to ransom by a minority who want to enjoy monopoly at the expense of the majority. The captains of industry are the ones conniving with economic saboteurs in order to cause artificial shortages of basic commodities. Therefore, let it be a free-market economy so as to enhance competition. Those who are hoarding basic food stuffs will eventually release them into the market at normal prices. Indeed, the Zimbabwean economy is under siege by those sharks who would like to fish in troubled waters. — Tawanda Nhokodi
*** So far the policies being implemented by Government to boost economic recovery are sound, but the major problem seems to be the issue of confidence from both the public and business. We must have a bit of faith in what these
guys are trying to do and support them in every possible way. If they fail, let us judge them afterwards rather than resist. — Tawanda Machona, Gweru
*** Now that the RBZ has opened investigations into allegations of improper conduct by four of its directors implicated in illegal currency trading, if they are found guilty, the State must recover whatever they can from these individuals. Repossess their properties, empty their bank accounts, lock them up and throw away the keys. — Samuel Madiro, Harare ***

Government should allow temporary import of goods that are in short supply until the production side catches up with demand. I can bet my last dollar that the landed price of bread will be 50 cents and cooking oil will cost less than $3.
