"Good E-money" can solve Zimbabwe’s 'coin problem'

Quote
When Zimbabweans say they are waiting for change, they are usually talking about politics. After all, the country has had the same leader since 1980.

I think most Africans readily would accept that money – at least their experience with government issued money has not exactly been so great.
