Presidential Advisory Council member Trevor Ncube has blamed ordinary Zimbabweans for the step taken by the central bank to liberalise the price of fuel by removing the 1:1 exchange rate.

The move by RBZ caused an increase to the price of fuel on Tuesday.

Ncube said Zimbabweans have been calling for the removal of the 1:1 exchange rate and they must feel the pain.

"Dear Zimbabwe, I am completely outraged by your outrage over things that you have been calling for which have just happened." Ncube said." Your rush to be part of popular opinion and in with the outraged crowd is so pedestrian. Yours Equally Outraged Compatriot."

Journalist Maynard Manyowa questioned whether Ncube was using Twitter views to advise the President.

"If you advising the executive based on what people want on twitter vs what is sensible then am afraid you smarter than zwitter but no less stupid. My son wants to drink 10 cans of coke, I don't allow it cause I know better. Can't blame him for wanting it when he gets sick." Manyowa said.

On Tuesday self-styled communications strategist William Mutumanje warned President Mnangagwa that if he does not fire his advisors the people of Zimbabwe are going to fire him.
