New Measures To Tame "Price Madness" To Be Announced Saturday

New Measures To Tame

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is expected to announce measures to address the price rises in basic grocery items and services since the beginning of the year.

Addressing the Seventh National Congress of the ZANU PF Women’s League in Harare on Friday, Mnangagwa said he will announce the measures this Saturday. He said:

My Government will tomorrow (today) be announcing concrete measures to tame inflation and unwarranted increases in prices and towards securing incomes and savings of our people, particularly women.

We remain committed to ensuring sustainable delivery of social services such as water and sanitation, availing affordable and quality education, and improving access to green energy solutions, among others.

The prices of basic goods and services, including fuel, transport, electricity, and school fees, among others, have been rising since the beginning of the year.

Zimbabwe’s annual rate of inflation last month was 131.7 per cent from the April rate of 96.4 per cent.

Measures at a Women's League conference. OMG. Uyu murume does not have the qualities of a leader. In History they will have 2 pages devoted to how clueless they were. In future case studies examples of how to destroy a country or what bad leadership entails Mnangagwa will always feature prominently. Soon after independence I happened to have a white supervisor in a gvt dept. I was curious to know what his qualifications were. Only to discover he only did military call up. That was it. But let me tell u. His leadership was excellent. From empathy, organisational techniques,administrative concepts,controls all the technical qualities. Mnangagwa hapana chozivikana except rampant looting

What I have from experience is that whenever there are these "measures" they are followed by price increases, price controls do not solve anything, in fact, they worsen

I want to be honest with His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa that people are now tired of false promises. Last month His Excellency held a press conference at State House and announced a number of measures which were meant to reduce prices. Some of the measures did not last a week before they were removed. Our government has tried all economic tricks in the books, including forced salary increments, but it has failed. The 100% increment was forced on workers because its employees rejected the offer. Government insisted that it was going to effect the increment with effect from 1 July 2022.

Whatever is going to be announced on a Saturday (when most formal businesses are closed), is likely to be price control or some other Command policy that has no bearing to economic realities.

One thing for sure is that those measures are unlikely to be consensual, consultative, realistic and economically viable. All I foresee are subsequent shortages of all basic commodities, bread, cooking oil and sugar for starters.

I find it amusing that a whole President had the temerity to talk of water availability when taps are dry, affordable education when teachers are hungry (and learners fork out hefty dollars for extra lessons), while the only beneficiary of green energy is Wicknell Chivhayo, who was paid millions for non-existent solar projects at Gwanda.

Next week it will be sadza neCovo katatu pazuva

The measures haven't been announced yet but just look at the amount of rebellion from this comment section. No wonder this beautiful country can't move at the strides it deserves. So many hypocrites on pedastals

Thanks @VYBZ Ketero. It is your Constitutional Right to call me names. Remember I always say "Never argue with an idi0t. They bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience "

Oh Machiavelli how long will you continue to spit into the wind? You continue to make nosie and don't do $hit

@Blue 💙, people are rebellious and angry because they are hungry. Furthermore after42½ years under ZANU, they know the animal they are dealing with. ZANU is very predictable. Command mentality is the hallmark of ZANU. So people know what to expect.

The country is failing to move forward not because people criticise the government, but because ZANU government does not listen to constructive criticism. If the government listened carefully and incorporates that criticism, the country would move forward.

Humbimbindoga ndihwo hunonetsa. And watch the comments section predictions come true once this "Announcement" is made today.
