Mnangagwa has expressed his displeasure with some local manufacturers whom he blamed for abusing laws meant to protect them from cheap imports by overcharging on the prices of goods creating artificial shortages through hoarding of goods. He said that government has to suspend statutory Instrument (SI) 122 due to unscrupulus practices by some manufacturers. He was speaking at the commissioning of a ProDairy milk processing plant in Ruwa. Mnangagwa had this to say
I was greatly disappointed three weeks ago when some of the manufacturers were now hoarding and not releasing products to the consumers. This is why I have now moved to remove SI 122 to allow, temporally, the inflow of some of these goods.
