Retailers, Manufacturers Put Aside Differences As Prices Stabilise

Retailers and manufacturers have decided to put aside their differences and work together for the nation. At one point, the retailers threatened to expose “unscrupulous” manufactures who were responsible for starving the market of goods through hoarding. Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers (CRZ) president Denford Mutashu said

We have set aside differences to work for the nation. Manufacturers should work and provide goods and services at affordable prices by distributing goods at the market fairly and practise responsible pricing.

Mutashu further said that the improvement in the supply and availability of goods was a result of the government’s suspension of SI 22.

The suspension of SI 22 has improved supplies. We are no longer seeing empty shelves, we are no longer seeing panic buying, a reason which piled pressure on manufacturers because of lack of goods as well as price increases. The situation has corrected itself, the general retailing and marketing is still huge, there is competitiveness in the trade that each and every company takes its own market share.

  1. The prevailing situation is being worsened by corruption and sabotage. If we can unite and stop being greedy our economy will improve.
