We Will Scrap The Bond Note On 1 August, Everyone Will Have To Open New USD Accounts says Tendai Biti

MDC Alliance principal and former minister of finance Tendai Biti has said that after winning the July 30 elections, everyone will be required to open new bank accounts for United States dollars only. 

He said that there was going to be a huge influx of cash and foreign direct investment. Speaking at a rally in Shamva, Biti said,
Tendai Biti
I was in America with Chamisa in December, we went to the United Kingdom in May, currently, he is somewhere (else). He called me last (Friday) night saying he was promised by the whites that on August 1, they will come with lorries and buses full of money. There will be foreign direct investment here.

We will bring back US dollars, so on August 1, we want everyone to open brand new US dollar bank accounts which are not contaminated by Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa. Close these RTGS ones. On August 1 after taking Chamisa to State House, we will hold a Press conference and scrap the bond note.

This comes at a time when President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his top officials have said that they are going to reintroduce the Zimbabwe dollar because they cannot control the United States dollar.
