If you have more than $217 left in your bank account, chances are you are better off than Zimbabwe.
The African country has only $217 left in public bank accounts after paying public workers last week, according to Agence France-Presse.
“Last week when we paid civil servants there was $217(left) in government coffers,” the country’s Finance Minister Tendai Biti told journalists in the capital Harare, AFP reported. Biti also noted that some of them had better bank balances than the state.
The government warned that the lack of cash would threaten next year’s elections, which will cost $104 million, according to the Quartz.
