Give Bloch time

AS an avid reader of the Zimbabwe Independent I have come across various letters by people criticising Eric Bloch on his recent appointment by the Reserve Bank governor as chairman of the Foreign Currency Auctions Advisory Board sub-commi


Among other duties, the sub-committee is responsible for repatriating foreign currency from Zimbabweans living in the diaspora. It is disheartening to note that many people are politicising his appointment.

As a matter of fact, Bloch is an economist. He does not have any side he pays allegiance to – he is apolitical.

As right thinking Zimbabweans the only thing we should be preoccupied with is restoration of our economy which is now in shambles. So if Bloch is confident that the plan of repatriating foreign currency from Zimbabweans living in the diaspora can work, let us not criticise, insult or discourage him.

To all those people who have politicised his appointment, I say it’s high time we gave Bloch time to implement his bright plans.
