In an interview with state television this week, Mugabe said his government had no option but to keep the printing machines running in order to be able to feed hungry Zimbabweans.


“The view of the finance ministry is that we be bookish, but this does not apply in our situation because of sanctions and drought. Those who say printing money causes inflation want us to fold our hands while people starve. I print money so people


can survive and workers can earn a living,” said the aged ruler.
