id police teams were on the ground checking on prices and would not hesitate to arrest business executives defying orders not to increase prices of their products.
Industry and International Trade Minister Obert Mpofu backed the crackdown, insisting private firms should not resort to hiking prices to survive Zimbabwe’s hyperinflationary environment but should wait for the government to fix a host of problems afflicting the economy and making it difficult for business to operate. – ZimOnline
