Note that the amounts given above are in the local ZWL bond currency. To be fair, when they were introduced, they appeared to be rather frightening. However, if you do the Maths at the current, ahem, real (black) market exchange rates, you will discover that ZINARA tollgates are pretty affordable. At the current rate, as an example, $10 bond is no more than USD 40 cents. The fifty dollars that is being paid by haulage trucks is no more than USD2. That is pretty affordable.
