‘What is RTGS in indigenous languages?’ Senator asks Mthuli Ncube
FINANCE Minister Mthuli Ncube continues being pinned down with difficult questions over his role as the Treasury chief.
Ndlovu said people in rural Zimbabwe did not even understand the term RTGS dollar.
“Is it feasible for you to translate that into indigenous languages so that people understand what RTGS is?” Ndlovu asked.
Ncube said there was no need to translate the RTGS dollar to the indigenous languages of Zimbabwe.
“Real Time Settlement System (RTGS) is actually our dollar. You just tell the people that RTGS is our dollar, just that. They can pay through Ecocash and swipe, while others may use the bond notes. The bond notes and RTGS are equal. This is our position as government.
“There is no need for us to explain that in indigenous languages. It is just our dollar ,” Ncube said.
Mthuli Ncube must be getting his head spinning each time he walks through the Parliament building doors.
