Life is hard and it’s also becoming very hard, People can do anything for the money, but we need to be careful with the choices we make today. Even when you are working, Your salary is really not enough and you need more money. It is up to us to have a standard, that certain lines must not be crossed no matter what.
Looking at all these, I believe we humans have made things difficult for ourselves, It is not good to compare today to the past but we must learn for the past. In those days with your small cassava farm you are good to go as a good rich man. Today, unnecessary pressure mounted by society and by ourselves especially Social media users. They won’t tell you the source of their property, some of the things you see are from loans, some are borrowed, some are even stolen. You need to be vigilant and not to be carried away.
You can make it, it’s a matter of time. Do not think you are in this hardship alone, just be close to honest people.
In Zimbabwe, people have started selling their toes for thousands of dollars. This is due to the high cost of living and failure for the government to create jobs. The toes is being bought at $40,000 dollars(N16 million naira) while the smaller ones at $20,000 dollars
Over the past couple of months, there have been unverified claims that Harare people are now cutting off their toes and selling them for riches.
The rumours have gained so much traction and are blowing up on social media, resulting in a barrage of memes and jokes about the issue.
It is believed that foreign currency and cell phone dealers who ply their trade at the Ximex Mall area along Jason Moyo Avenue are now selling their toes for riches. Unverified screenshots flying around on WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook suggest that some sell their toes for as much as US$40,000 for the big toe, US$25,000 for the moddle toe and US$10,000 for the tiny toe.
Further allegations suggest that Ximex dealers always wear closed shoes or sandals with socks to conceal their feet with few toes. Social media users have been making jokes about the issue saying it is better to have nine toes while driving a Toyota Hilux GD6 than having both sets of toes but walking on foot.
According to Zimdaily.com
HARARE – Harare Based Woman is crying for help after she joined the trending “Zvigumwe” cultism. This is a topic that has been trending on social media platforms where people are selling their toes for ritual money. What motivates the people is none other than poverty and wanting “quick and easy money”.
The most popular motive, according to many “Ximex Boys” is “to be able to buy a Toyota GD6 truck” which has an estimated price of USD$25k-$70k. This has caused a major shock in the CBD of Harare where most “big boys in town” are left with less or no toes at all, depending on your “passion for money”
Can anyone really sell their toes and make instant cash or we are just being sold a dummy?. The sound of it seems a little weird but it’s a subject that is dominating social media sites in this country. Have we really hit rock bottom as a people that we believe we don’t have to sweat for money and prefer giving some South African sangomas our toes?
Social media has been awash with these tales since last Thursday with news that local dealers, especially those at Ximex Mall in the capital, can’t walk bare footed after selling off their toes.
In one of the circulating messages, there are even unconfirmed prices for the big toe (US$40 000), middle toe (US$25 000) and small toe (US$10 000).
Some say this is work of a cult, who demand the toes in exchange for 10 years’ riches, but one will lose a relative along the way.
Other claims are that, after agreeing to have a toe cut off, no other person must see the leg.
A close source at Ximex claims the story is just something which one guy jokingly shared with his colleagues and has now been blown out of proportion.
“I can’t really deny or confirm such activity at Ximex Mall but what I have gathered is that this whole issue was blown out of proportion after a few guys shared it as a joke.
“Yes, some of the latest cars that the dealers are driving are questionable, imagine seeing a guy who has been struggling to buy lunch for himself now cruising in a Mercedes Benz GL400 which costs US$200 000, you have questions,” said the source.
In a voice note, purported to belong to one ‘donor’, she claims the process was not painful but she received the shock of her life after some maggots came out of her leg. Read the original post
