Zimbabwean Central Bank to introduce $100 note
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe on Wednesday said that it was set to introduce a new 100 Zimbabwean (ZWL) dollar note.
This followed instructions by the Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube.
The instructions were given by Ncube in a “Statutory Instrument’’ published in the April 5 “Extraordinary Government Gazette.’’
This follows the introduction of a 50 ZWL note in July 2021.
At Tuesday’s weekly foreign currency auction, the ZWL’s rate fell to 145.8721 ZWL to 1 U.S. dollar, down from the previous week’s 142.4237 to 1 U.S. dollar.
A man died after crashing his car into a fence outside the Russian embassy in Bucharest, Romanian police said on Wednesday.
The circumstances of the incident were not immediately known.
It was also unclear whether the incident was connected to the Russian war in Ukraine.
Police and the public prosecutor’s office had started an investigation.
Russian Ambassador, Valery Kuzmin told state broadcaster Rossiya-24 that Russia considered the incident a terrorist attack.
However, Kuzmin admitted that the circumstances were still unclear.
