"I Know You Are Suffering Because Of Price Issues" - President Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he is aware that the country is experiencing a food price hike crisis which he blamed on saboteurs and supply chain monopolies.

Addressing ZANU PF supporters at the Murewa centre, Mnangagwa promised villagers that his administration would deal with the food crisis. He said:

I know you are suffering because of price issues, especially in the food sector. They are doing this to sabotage us; they want you to turn against us. This is because we have few companies and they monopolise the food sector.

As government we are doing much to break this monopoly, especially on the supply side. One of the remedies is to suspend import duty on basic goods.

We found out that we need 470 000 metric tonnes of wheat in this country per year. We used to produce wheat that would last for two months while importing the rest. We then came up with ideas to increase wheat productivity, and our wheat is now lasting us 11 months, hence the remainder is imported. We are going to have wheat that lasts us 13 months next month. It will be sufficient, hence bread prices will go down.

Prices of basic commodities like bread and other foodstuffs have gone beyond the reach of many with bread now costing as much as $945.

Mnangagwa addressed the villagers soon after officially opening a Registrar-General’s office at Murewa centre, whose construction started about 17 years ago.

He also promised the villagers free food handouts to deal with food insecurity.

I really understand somehow, that there will be a reduction in the price of basic commodities....my biggest Question in on the issue of "Dollarisation ",will dollarisation be a solution to revamp the economy out of the murky waters?.

Dollarization right now would be detrimental to the economy

reduction of price will be meaningful if bread goes down to $100rtgs thus were will talk about price reduction.
reduction of prices will be meaningful, when one can buy cooking oil for less than $500rtgs.
besides that eissssh

that's true it is the solution to deal with hyperinflation but our problem is inability to comprehend with reality by our leaders.Now they are more focused on election how to win at the experience of our suffering The bond is an instrument to bribe the masses particularly in the rurals .Hence the reason why they can not remove it bz it is printable for deception's sake . Print , donate ,sabuku nevanhu vake , after all ,more five yrs of suffering then again towards election , the same style is applied , fertilizer for free , sugar maize cooking oil paraffin , ration .I wonder how ****s , ****s ,are they going to be deceived .We are tired, of the rest of years they turn their heads from the deceiver proclaiming that our children they don't about them ,yet they are the one who let us down

His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa should not shade crocodile tears because his table is always full of all types of foods for which he calls Advocate Douglas Mwonzora and Morgen Komichi to finish off crumbs from underneath the table. Mr President, NYIKA INO YAURAIWA NE MBAVHA DZAYO whereas countries like Zambia, Botswana and South Africa DZICHI VAKWA NE VENE VADZO. Citizens now want to eliminate your political party, ZANU PF and substitute it with CCC political party. Citizens now want real change and not pseudo change.

President Mnangagwa don't force things you are a pariah. leave those you are thinking so God will bless you and Nelson Chamisa will also give you pension as he is publicly promising, just go because we are suffering 👏

To expect the same hand that created the problem to bring a solution is wishful thinking. ED and his clueless Zanu are the cause of the mayhem in this country & for the same people to come & tell us that they have a know how to resolve the situation is insanity. They Zanu have destroyed entirely everything they have touched: ZUPCO,ZBC,NRZ,AIRZIM,ZESA, neZANU yacho. We need complete reengineering of the system. And that system must not include Tendayi Chirau, Tafadzwa Mugwadi,George Charamba,Nick Ndavaningi Mangwana and Patrick Chinamasa.

Well said @Zulu. Most Ministers and Members of Parliament operate own businesses where they are hiking prices like any other businessman is doing. Then who is subotaging who ? They are self subotuers.
