One of ZANU’s tricks is to talk so long about their plans that we get bored before they eventually carry out the plan and it takes us by surprise.

Remember they still threaten us with bond notes in October. A lot of things that have been said about this scheme need challenging. First: “this is just like bond coins”. That is a lie. Bond coins work because nobody treats them as real money. They are useful tokens for kombi fares, but nobody wants to be left holding a sackful of them at the end of the day. Do you remember how bundles of – I think it was 20×Z$50million -notes served this purpose? Three of them were accepted as US50c while their real values halved daily. As long as you only had one set of three until the next passenger paid with a dollar and you got your Z$ wad as change, the system worked. Not if they become a big part of the system.
