The Grain Millers’ Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) chairperson, Mr. Tafadzwa Musarara has announced that the association will be dispatching price monitoring officers this coming Monday.
The association revealed that it will stop supplying retailers that are to be found pricing basic commodities beyond stipulated margins.
Speaking at a retailers-wholesalers joint meeting in Bulawayo last Thursday, Musarara said:
Bulawayo will have price monitoring officers hovering around on Monday next week (this week) and they will interrogate where they will find unjustified price markups. Retailers who will not comply will face blacklisting.
Musarara added that the association shall, on a weekly basis, be notifying consumers of any changes to prices. He added:
Due to technological advancements what we are going to do is that we can on daily or weekly basis advise retailers or consumers on the price movements…and do all the necessary consultations with Government.
