What does the chairman say? Mangudya added that the special fintech group was created to work on the initiative. He said that the Zimbabwean government intends to send a separate team to Nigeria to study the country’s experience, which has already launched CBDC. The state became the first in Africa to announce the release of a digital currency at the end of October 2021:
“As a central bank, we don’t believe in cryptocurrencies. We believe in central bank digital currency,” the chairman noted.
What had happened before? In mid-November, Zimbabwe's Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa explained that the state government is interested in experimenting with the central bank’s digital currency. The authorities in many African countries are now considering CBDC as a tool to accelerate the implementation of their financial inclusion initiatives. Ghana, Tanzania, and Nigeria have recently joined the list.
