Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) governor John Mangudya has complained that people who are abusing social media through fake articles are destabilising the economy. Speaking to NewsDay, Mangudya said,
….Wrong decisions that people make due to fake news is beyond measure.
It’s just unfair. We are appealing to people not to politicise and abuse the social media because it’s not good for the nation.
As monetary authorities, our job is to ensure that the economy is stable, so if you send such negative social media stories, what it means is that you are destabilising the economy…We are trying to build the economy but some are destroying it through social media.
