By Own Correspondent| Some of Chitungwiza commuter omnibus operators here have joined the fray of businesses charging forex pegging a single trip from the satellite town to the city centre Harare at US$1 or 3 bond.
Passengers here have been left stranded following the development which they said is making it difficult for them to commute.
Said Gregory Dube from Unit D in Seke:
“The situation is getting out of hand. Where is the President when all this is happening? Please tell him to come back and sort out this economic mess instead of travelling the world.”
Angela Chikwanha who had to return home after hearing the new fares had no kind words for President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.
“This is why there should be competent people in office. I am sure these people are driving us to a certain boiling point. We are suffering and it is getting worse by the day.”
Zimbabwe Democracy Institute Director Dr Pedzisayi Ruhanya called on citizens to unite and challenge the existing status quo arguing that peaceful protest is the only language that is understood by Zanu Pf.
“Zimbos come together in the national interest to peacefully, lawfully resist through civil disobedience the 39 years of failed policies of ZANU PF. Dont agonise, organise. Bring ZANU PF to the negotiation table through public protests of MISRULE, thats only language they hear!
The socio-economic-politico crisis in Zimbabwe and the consequent national anger requires a leader now. In the late 1990s Morgan Tsvangirai stood up and brought together all disparate forces and voices; labour, students, poor, employers and farmers workers to confront Bob, system.”
