Fidelity has reverted back to buying rates of 55% USD and 45% RTGS.
The country sole buyer had earlier today published the buying rates in local currency. This was in line with government announcement abolishing the multi-currency system. The Public Relations Officer head Chelesani Moyo acknowledged the change but advised she could not shed more light as she was on leave.
The Zim currency rates had sparked outrage as miners swore Fidelity will not receive anything from them.
