ZANU-PF Goromonzi West Member of Parliament Energy Mutodi asks why is it that the Zambian Kwacha is gaining against the American dollar while the Zimdollar is dying despite the country boasting of vast mineral resources and educated manpower.

Apparently, in response renowned investigative journalist Hopewell Chin’ono
“It is so easy to explain Hon Adv Dr Mutodi.
“Your party ZANUPF has turned Zimbabwe into a criminal enterprise where crooks working for powerful ZANUPF politicians smuggle Gold and many other things depriving the country of its resource profit.
“Vote out ZANUPF & Zim will be fine!”
