Zimbabwe’s Balancing Rocks

Zimbabwe's Balancing Rocks

These imposing balancing rocks in Epworth, on the outskirts of Harare, have been synonymous with Zimbabwe’s currency since the country’s independence in 1980. They were a constant feature at the back of every note. These rocks also made it to the bearer cheques and other forms of currency during the recent hyper-inflationary era. One cannot help but remember the glorious days of a strong Zimbabwean currency when looking at these rocks. Although Zimbabwe is currently using multiple foreign currencies since March 2009, these rocks are a reminder that in spite of all the challenges this nation has faced, it is possible to have a strong currency once again, and indeed, for a resilient nation such as this, it is just but a matter of time before that happens.
