IF the Homelink scheme is such a resounding success, bringing in US$750 000 a day, why is it only US$8 million that continues to be made available on the three auction days every week since the introduction of the public foreign exchange
Last week the demand varied from US$16 million to nearly US$24 million.
I notice that most of the “people” who are claimed to have pledged to send more money through Homelink appear to be Zimbabwean students abroad.
It is not beyond our rules to use them as rented mobs – with the students only too happy to come for free meals. My statement is informed by the rented crowds who are being used to demonstrate how popular numero uno is among the masses in the region.
