Just hoping these #BondNotes are the straw that breaks the camels back and instead lead to the change we need! #changeiscoming

Not a currency says RBZ. Sure looks like a currency to me. All the features are there. Oh ya, except it won't hold any value. #BondNotes pic.twitter.com/obyNbnbuzl

According to @HeraldZimbabwe, "the majority of people" are optimistic that bond notes will solve the cash crisis.
