Bindura shops, schools, not accepting ZiG


By Marsha Sengwe

Most shops in Bindura, specifically the big supermarkets are yet to display their products prices in ZiG.

Customers only get to know the ZiG price at the counter when paying.

A survey carried out by Nehanda Guardian showed that only items like bread, cooking oil and mealie meal had ZiG prices but others like stoves, refrigerators and beds only had United States dollar prices, the same with premium beers, whiskeys and wines.

The shops however had boards showing their daily exchange rates.

Speaking to some customers in a vox pop, many called police and the Consumer Council of Zimbabwe to carry out raids on shops not accepting the ZiG mainly the small tuck-shops, downtown.

Many of these sole traders are not accepting ZIG and soft money in the form of Ecocash even if it is in United States dollars.

The customers also called the law enforcers to be serious and professional alleging them of accepting bribes from some business owners not accepting the ZiG so that they do not arrest them.
Also, some schools including council and government run are not accepting ZiG.

Parents pleaded with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to walk its talk by enforcing schools to accept the local currency in fees payments as it said over the holiday.

Many parents said the ministry was not stamping its authority on schools defying the government directive which said fees can be paid using ZiG.
