Zimbabwe to review mobile money tax after backlash

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Zimbabwe’s president Emmerson Mnangagwa vowed to review a controversial 2 per cent electronic money transfer tax following fierce criticism of the levy from consumers and businesses.

Writing in a column in national newspaper Sunday News, Mnangagwa added the government “took to heart the cry that the 2 per cent transactional tax has compounded the tax burden for both business and for the consumer” and would reassess it along with upcoming laws covering the financial sector.
