Zimbabweans React To Introduction Of $50 Bank Note
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) on Tuesday announced the introduction of a $50 note which goes into circulation on Wednesday. The new banknote features the image of and immortalises liberation icon and spirit medium Nehanda Charwe Nyakasikana, popularly known as just Mbuya Nehanda.
However, it seems that some Zimbabweans are unimpressed by the introduction of the new note citing its alleged low buying power. They highlight that the biggest note in circulation will not be able to purchase the most basic of things such as a loaf of bread. They also highlighted that following the recent hike in Zupco fares, some people will need between two and three $50 notes for a single trip.
Below are some of the reactions from Zimbabweans on social media to the new $50 note.
This whole Mbuya Nehanda note cannot singularly pay for just one ZUPCO trip. You almost need three for a round trip… If I were her, I’d be turning in my grave for being associated with such uselessness. pic.twitter.com/LKivl1hBYa

The strongest currency in the region will welcome a $50 note tomorrow. The note cannot however buy a loaf of bread or pay bus fare for urban commuting. In South Africa the smallest note 10 Rand will buy you bread and get you a taxi. pic.twitter.com/DKAJpocgTw

This $50 note won’t last long.
It can’t immortalize Mbuya Nehanda because it will soon be worthless, if it isn’t already.
To immortalize this brave woman, we must be true to the values she fought for, particularly an oppression-free society.
