How Zimbabweans are reacting to bond notes on Twitter

The bond notes are officially out after being released today.  We  went to the bank bright and early today to get some of the new currency.

Here is a collection of some of the more interesting reactions from Zimbabweans on Twitter.

Just hoping these #BondNotes are the straw that breaks the camels back and instead lead to the change we need! #changeiscoming

We are currently witnessing one of the biggest scams in history… Who just prints paper and determines it’s value? #BondNotes

Zimbabweans sense of humour in the midst of a socio-economic catastrophe :

US$5 + Bond Note 5 = 10 Bollars!

Not a currency says RBZ. Sure looks like a currency to me. All the features are there. Oh ya, except it won’t hold any value. #BondNotes

According to @HeraldZimbabwe, “the majority of people” are optimistic that bond notes will solve the cash crisis.

They are experts in turning things to majority. Remember mega deals, landslides victories etc.
