Bulawayo Mayo David Coltart has blamed the City's challenges on the continued use of th zimbabwean Dollar in the country.

Posting on Twitter, Coltart said:

Having been in the role of Mayor of #Bukawayo for just over 2 weeks it is clear to me that a major cause of the malaise facing the City is the continued use of the Z$. Budgeting in such a volatile currency is almost impossible & paying staff in Z$ has caused morale to plummet.

Coltart's statement was rubbished by Professor Jonathan Moyo who said what Colatrt was saying was common knowlege.

Said Moyo, "Wow. Eureka, @DavidColtart. You're a genius. So broadcasting this pedestrian view that you've just discovered, which is heard everyday in pubs, is the solution from the ceremonial Mayor of Bulawayo?"
