Prices of commodities and basic services have been on a continual sharp rise for the past 24 months.
The inflation is attributed to a number of issues including the scarcity of foreign currency, a deficit in fuel, power cuts, collapsed local industry and market distortions.

The review is as follows:
- Gardener – ZW$160.00 –
