As it is not performing, there is no inflow of foreign currency into the country to enable the payment for this fuel,” “Mangudya’s role as the RBZ governor or any bank for that matter is not to go about looking for forex, but to keep the forex that companies will have made through exports. They keep it and dish it out later and that is what the process is all about and that is what should be done” External link
