Zimbabweans believe that the immediate move to turn around the country’s economic fortunes is to get rid of the Zimbabwean dollar and spare the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor John Mangudya.

In a poll run by on Thursday, a 57% majority believe that the problem is the local currency not the man managing the currency.

The Zim Dollar has in recent weeks been tumbling down in the parallel market going as low as US$1 to ZWL$80 in the streets of Harare.

The fall in the dollar has seen incessant price increases of most basic commodity with bread hitting a high of up to ZWL$70 in a bid to match the US$0.90 price.

35% believed that Mangudya should actually be dismissed for the economy to stabilise.

The Reserve Bank governor has been battling to fight the fall of the local currency he forced back in February 2008, in the process coming up with hoards of numerous inconsistent policies.

Just 2% of the respondents believed that Mangudya and his Dollar must be given a chance to work out.

Below is the outcome of the poll.
