Former Deputy Finance Minister Terence Mukupe is appalled by the austerity for prosperity program that is being implemented by Minister of Finance Mthuli Ncube.

Mukupe says the policy is one sided and it is making the poor become more poorer.  

"Varume the one sided austerity program is failing, "Mukupe said. "Protect the majority of Zimbabweans living in humiliating poverty by developing social protection systems that enable them to live with dignity! It's treasonous what's going on with the forex rate and consumer prices! VaChinamasa."

Norton Member of Parliament and former ZANU PF Centrzl Committee member Temba Mliswa said Mthuli Ncube was incapacitated to deliver because he was not a member of Politiburo and he has to report to ZANU PF structures.  

"Naturally as ZANUPF is the ruling party he'd report to Chinamasa as the Sec for Finance & former Minister of Finance. You then have Dr. Mangudya at the RBZ who's on the ground and probably understands the situation better

"Then again you have some politicians who've disregarded the rule of law and are corrupt. In view of this what can we really expect Mthuli Ncube to do? He represents us well but aren't the stacks against him? Doesn't not being a member of the Politburo hamper his decision making capacity? Do they support him?"
