FINANCE minister Herbert Mure-rwa says he is now popularly known as “Mr Burial Cheques”.
ing VIPs at the launch of Barbican Bank Ltd on Tuesday night, Murerwa said: “I know you are all concerned about the current cash crisis. I am too. I am however more concerned because I am now being called Mr Burial Cheques.”
The nickname was coined from the bearer cheques introduced by government in a bid to try and solve the cash fiasco.
Murerwa, whose ministry coordinates operations at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, said while he sympathised with Zimbabweans because of the cash squeeze he, however, could not be held responsible for the way the economy was being run.
