John Mangudya the Reserve bank governor is facing a hard time as the public is speculating on the social media about his dismissal as the RBZ governor. The environment continues not to act in his favour as Zimbabwe is facing an economic meltdown.
Mangudya has since become unpopular since the time he introduced the bond notes and vowed that if they do not work he would resign as the governor. Now his expulsion as the governor seems to be inevitable as a new competitor that is coming Andrew Bvume.
Efforts to get any comments from John Mangudya were fruitless as his phones were out of reach at the time of publication of this article.
The farewell party that was held by World Bank for Andrew Bvume has led to the public wondering if he might be coming back home to lead the RBZ.
