Zimbabwe devalues currency; 10B becomes 1 dollar

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) ? Zimbabwe's central bank governor says he is knocking 10 zeros off the country's hyper-inflated currency to make 10 billion dollars become one dollar.

Zimbabwe suffers the highest inflation rate in the world. Governor Gideon Gono says that high rate is constraining operations of the country's computer systems. Computers, electronic calculators and automated teller machines at banks have not been able to handle basic transactions in billions and trillions of dollars.

Just last week Gono introduced a new 100 billion-dollar note that is not enough to buy a loaf of bread.

Gono says the new rate goes into effect on Aug. 1 with the issue of a 500-dollar bill equivalent to 5 trillion dollars at the current rate.

i think we should desist from refering to umnotho wethu as mgodoyi's.this kind of language isenza singabi nomdladla woku rescue izwe lethu from the rat invasion. uma si refer to our VIC falls as belonging to zambia and umnotho as being a chinese thing then at least mentally we have nothing ngakho wubani ozolwela into engasiyakhe??abePalestine bayazi into abayilwelwayo kodwa thina we were resigned to the "fact"(or is it?) than we have been taken over and akukho tho esingalwenza ngakho which is false!! we should start refering to our resources as ours and let our children know ukuthi ngawabo nabo!!decolonisation begins with the mind!!

Okulitshona lokhu okuthiwa ngu gono kuyazihlanyela ke lokhu nga kusemazweni nga sebakuvalela. Kungimangalisa ngokuthi just a few weeks ago kufake i $100B into circulation, at a cost obviously, noma nje ngingazi ukuthi how much. Namhlanje sokukhuphe 10 zeros and is introducing enye i currency obviously kusuka kuthini ekhanda lakhe, yikho lisifa leliya lizwe, how long does he sit down for to plan these things.

Mina sengidakakile ke okweqiniso ngemgaxa leya, lingaphi bakhokheli bethu
