@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.
