Speaking during a tour of shops looted and burnt down by protestors in Bulawayo’s western suburbs yesterday, Minister of Industry and Commerce, Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndlovu said Government is working on modalities to assist affected businesses to restock.
It was good to appreciate and have a physical feel of what businesses went through and seeing how communities are struggling to buy basic commodities such as mealie-meal, sugar, bread and so forth after the lootings which emanated from violent protests. As Government we are now trying to come up with ways of assisting businesses to restock and we also want to assure our people that as from tomorrow (today), supplies will begin to normalise.
