@mko­go_run­yararo on ‘Govern­ment not in­tro­duc­ing price con­trols’ It’s good you’re tak­ing lessons from the past.

*** @lut­ty­gan­dawa on ‘Bak­ers plot $4 per loaf’ I have told my daugh­ter that bread causes cholera and can­cer, so it should be taken only once in a while. Sun­day Mail Zim­babwe Davis Phiri on ‘Hefty fines for price hikes’ It’s long over­due. www.sun­day­mail.co.zw

Goto on ‘Bak­ers plot $4 per loaf’ The price of bread in Botswana and SA is less than $0,60. When we were us­ing the USD when it was freely avail­able, the price of a loaf here was $1. What was the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion then? What is their cost model? The big­gest prob­lem is in­ef­fi­ciency, greed and a bloated salary struc­ture. Th­ese same bak­ers should go into wheat con­tract farm­ing with farm­ers in­stead of be­ing cry­ba­bies. Its high time Govern­ment goes into ne­go­ti­a­tions with iden­ti­fied in­dus­tries, ring-fence them and sup­ply them with forex.

*** Simbi on ‘Bak­ers plot $4 per loaf’ The prover­bial “feed­ing the puppy with milk”. The very same in­dus­try pro­tected by SI 164 is the same one hound­ing in­no­cent con­sumers. Just remove this pro­tec­tion and al­low im­ports in. Prob­lem ex­ac­er­bated by the gullible con­sumer, as well as an equally clue­less and sleep­ing CCZ in­ca­pable of pro­tect­ing and ad­vo­cat­ing con­sumer rights. With proper con­sumer ed­u­ca­tion, a week’s boy­cott of bread would un­doubt­edly bring san­ity into this sea of mad­ness.
