Zimbabwe ATMs run out of US Dollars, citizens prepare for Chinese Yuan ATMs
A snap survey by the Zimbabwe Independent has found that there is a biting cash shortage which has forced banks to lower their daily automated teller machine (ATM) withdrawal limits from $3,000 to $800, the newspaper reported on Friday.
The newspaper continued to report that some locally-owned banks had long suspended dispensing cash at most of their ATMs, with a government-owned bank going without ATM transactions since the festive season in an effort to manage the cash shortage.
But the situation is said to have gotten worse last year, starting late November, according to the newspaper.
Banks were also reported to have suspended interconnectivity through ZimSwitch, an electronic payment platform for local banks, at their ATMs or for specific banks.
A banker who spoke to the Independent on condition of anonymity confirmed that banks had suspended transactions on ZimSwitch to reserve cash only for their customers.
“What we are simply doing as banks is we are saying let’s stop giving money to everyone with a ZimSwitch ready card and preserve it only for our internal clients until the situation normalises,” said the banker.
The Zimbabwe dollar was demonetised last year and the country recently adopted the Chinese yuan after Beijing confirmed it would cancel $40 million in debts.
