Godwin Mangudya is a multimedia journalist based in Harare, Zimbabwe. I have over the last 13 years stringed for the VOA Zimbabwe Service (Studio7). I have previously worked for the Zimbabwe Inter Africa News Agency, The Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe as a senior reporter prior to its closure by the government of Zimbabwe in 2003. I have strung for a number of news organisation such as Zimonline and the La Times.
Zimbabwe recently introduced surrogate currency due to serious cash shortages. Its called Bond Notes. And the Catholic church says there must be political will for the currency to work. Most Zimbabweans are skceptical of the policy measures as they view it as an attempt by the government to bring back the Zimbabwean dollar rejected by people in 2009.
